Presentation College, Tuam are the Connacht Post Primary Schools Senior A Ladies Football Champions after beating Convent of Mercy, Roscommon 4-19 to 2-2 in Tuam Stadium today (Wednesday).

First half goals for Aoife O’Rourke and Amy Coen sent the Galway side on their way to a 2-9 to 0-2 interval advantage before Niamh Daly and Amy O’Donovan added second majors for an impressive 23-point win.

This result came just seven days after they defeated Sacred Heart, Westport to clinch the Junior A crown and they’ll head into the All-Ireland series in confident form after retaining their title.

Their semi-final opponents will be Loreto College, Cavan who beat Castleblayney, Monaghan in the Ulster Final and that game will take place on the weekend of March 4th.

Presentation Tuam haven’t won the All-Ireland since 2003 when they beat Kerry’s Colaiste na Sceilge.  Loreto, Cavan have never been champions but they did contest the 2017 Junior A decider against Limerick’s John The Baptist, who beat Tuam in the semi-final.
