Loreto Wins Ulster

U16 Gaelic Team win ‘Corn Courtney’

Congratulations to our U-16 Gaelic team who captured  ‘Corn Courtney’ in MUSA Cookstown. Loreto played against a strong breeze in the first half. Our opponents, Assumption Grammar, got off to a good start using the wind to their advantage. However, our girls, through some tenacious defending, weathered the storm and started to make inroads into the Ballynahinch girls defence through some superb goals.

This gave the Loreto girls great spirit leading into the half-time break. The second half, with the wind now in our favour, started off with a few quick goals and points. This spurred the Loreto girls on and we eventually ran out convincing winners. The support from the sideline was immense and there was elation at the final whistle from the Omagh crowd.

A superb team performance! We now look forward to the All Ireland semi-final.
