First Year Girls Football Blitz

Our enthusiastic first girls took off Wednesday morning to Ballincollig GAA grounds to take part in their first Gaelic football blitz in the Kinsale colours.

Kinsale entered two teams, Kinsale A and Kinsale B in the blitz playing a number of matches throughout the course of the day against neighbouring schools. The harsh weather conditions did not hamper the girl’s spirits as they battled against Coachford, Coláiste an Chraoibhín, Fermoy (eventual winners), St Mary’s Midleton and Coláiste Choilm. Both teams reached the semi final stages and were unlucky to lose out on places in the finals, by a point (Kinsale A) and a goal (Kinsale B) respectively. The girls will continue to train hard, and are optimistic for the next blitz. Well done to all involved.
