Senior Girls win Soccer final
Coláiste Muire senior girls claimed the Cork title for the second year running, beating Kinsale in a high-scoring encounter. The girls got off to a flying start with three goals from Megan O’Keeffe in the opening ten minutes. Kinsale came back into it with two goals before half time which put the Crosshaven girls on edge.
Our girls retained their composure in the second half. Two more stunning goals from Megan brought her tally and Coláiste Muire’s to five. Well done to the girls. millerealty.com
