Ladies in Junior All Ireland Final

posted 27 Nov 2018, 13:09 by Tourlestrane GAA PRO
Our magnificent ladies march on to All Ireland final having beaten Leinster Finalists Old Leighlin of Carlow in a nail biting finish on Sunday Nov 18th. What a wonderful feeling it is to be able to type the words Tourlestrane ladies are in an All Ireland Final!!! For our fantastic supporters, for our parish for our county but most especially for our club Tourlestrane what an achievement for the 30 girls steered by managers David Bailey, Enda Kelly and Leo Gaughan. To say we are all so proud is an understatement we are grateful to them for giving the club such a lift and many many great days and nights out throughout this long football season of 2018 to find ourselves painting the parish Green and Gold in the month of December and sidetracking the Christmas decorations !! Thank you to all the local businesses who have willingly come on board to sponsor the girls on their journey but once again a heartfelt thankyou to the supporters who travelled to matches at this stage far and near cheering on from the stands and encouraging the team. Ocean FM are hosting their Final Whistle programme next Thursday Dec 6th live from Flynns Aclare where everyone is welcome to call in and take part in the conversation and fun as we chat to various characters around the club scene. The All Ireland final for those who haven't yet heard it is in Duggan Park Ballinasloe at 1.30pm on December 9th. We face Cork team Glanmire Ladies in this club history making match and have been asked to arrange another supporters bus for the occasion so we are continuing to take names for it . In the mean time lets unite behind the ladies and managers we are overjoyed to say took us to an All Ireland 2018
