Cuchulainn Senior Ladies competed for the All Ireland Championship Title on Sunday 27th August. They came up against a very experienced Glynnbarntown team from County Wexford, who were the reigning champions of 2016. Up to the 3rdinning Cuchulainn held Glynnbarntown very close with only 3 runs between them. In the third inning Glynnbarntown showed to everyone why they are the reigning champions and that they were there to make sure they went home with their two in a row. With severe batting they went well ahead and it was catch up from there for our women but they never gave up and every opportunity to try to make a comeback was made. We had some great catches out field and even a home run from Katie Brennan. This was an excellent achievement by the women with it being the first time ever in the history of the Club to reach a Womens All Ireland Championship final. They have progressively gone from strength to strength this year with the addition of new players along side our long term experienced players. We are sure that the women will bring forward all their experiences from this year to the 2018 season and hopefully be back to the finals again next year.
The Club would like to thank all the Supporters who travelled on the day and gave us great support from the sidelines from flags to headbands and our own teddy mascot. We would also like to thank those who sent messages of good wishes to the Club. Finally a huge thanks to Máire George of Siopa Glas, Mary Jordan of The Forge and Joe & Mary Doyle for the hospitality given to us when we arrived back in the village that evening. Bring on 2018!!
