Simonstown Senior Ladies Champions

Masita Meath Ladies Senior Final Venue: Donaghmore/Ashbourne GAA club October 13th 2018 Simonstown 6-13 Seneschalstown 0-12 Referee: Paul Mooney Scríobh Mickí McGabhann as Tír Conaill faoi Rotha Mòr an tSaoil. McGowan wrote a classic about the wheels of life always turning. A year ago Simonstown men were Meath senior champions, Dunboyne Ladies started their All Ireland quest. A year later Dunboyne men’s team are in the county final and Simonstown ladies are Meath champions. Ten years ago this weekend Dunboyne U14s defeated Simonstown girls in a wet Skryne day. This Saturday nine of that defeated Simonstown girls supped at the top table of Meath Ladies football. Ten years ago Seneschalstown were Meath Ladies champions. Two of the Sheridan’s and Aurelita Everard lined out in this years final. Enough sentimental reminiscing and serendipity. Ashbourne was as wet and miserable as Skryne was ten years ago. Seneschalstown started the stronger team. Mary Sheridan and her sister Mena, called the midfield shots for the first fifteen minutes. Orla Finnegan led the Simonstown back a line a merry dance and the scoreboard reflected that supremacy, 0-4 to 0-1. Individual interventions from the Sky Blue Ladies led the final ball mopped up by a Sheridan or a Monaghan. Seneschalstown looked good as the first fifteen ticked by. The sense of urgency was palpable in the stand from the Simonstown followers. Then Jackie Shiels bobbled to the surface. She had kicked the first two scores for the Sky Blues before taking charge and grabbing her team mates, metaphorically, by the scruff of the neck. Inside a three minute spell Simonstown had netted twice and possibly...

Simonstown U13 Ladies Lose Out

U13 Division 6B Autumn League, Round 2 Simonstown C 1-02 Navan O’Mahonys B 11-14 Our U13C team were back in action last night in Round 2 of the Autumn League. On a terrible wet night for football they unfortunately came up against an extremely strong Navan O’Mahonys B side. For the first ten minutes of this game these young ladies matched their much stronger opposition in every department but as the half progressed O’Mahonys took control. Despite the best efforts of our Simonstown girls the scores started to mount up. To their credit the girls continued to try and play football with the little possession they had and some fine build up play did result in Libby O’Reilly finding the back of the net and Mia Walsh continued her fine free scoring form with 2 points. Even though the scores kept coming for O’Mahonys in the second half not for one minute did any of the girls give up and despite the final score it was great to see the girls accept that the better team won on the day. There will be much better days ahead for this group of girls as most of this team will still be eligible for this age group next year and beyond. There is no doubt they will continue to learn from these games and again as long as they are enjoying playing and bonding as a team they will be a force to be reckoned with in the very near future.
