Congratulations to Derry Feile 2016 champions and therefore Derry representatives at All Ireland Feile – Ballymaguigan
Congratulations are in order for all associated with the super run of Steelstown to an All Ireland semi final where they made the long trip to Bantry for an All Ireland semi final after being so successful in the Ulster championship.
After winning the Derry Junior A Championship the city side went on to face Mullaghbawn in the preliminary round of the Ulster Junior championship. A 1.09 to 1.06 victory in South Armagh brought them to a home Ulster quarter final against Trillick. Again a three point margin sufficed as they went through to a semi final after a 3.09 to 2.09 win.
Next up were neighbours Buncrana but this proved to be probably more comfortable than they had expected, as the Steelstown squad won by a ten point margin – 4.12 to 3.05 and so pitted them in a final against O’Neil Shamrocks from Monaghan.
A tight game by all accounts and the Steelstown ladies ground out a three point win, 1.07 to 1.04, with Emma Doherty playing a major role in this success, accounting for all seven points!
Ulster Junior Champions 2015.
In what can only be described as an odd arrangement, Steelstown then had to travel to Bantry to play an All Ireland semi final – at their opponents home pitch? Surely the powers that be need to look at this arrangement. This is much too important a stage of competition that one side should be afforded such a bonus!
It was to be a step too far for the Steelstown Ladies as they succumbed to the home side, but only after putting up a terrific performance, failing by a 4 point margin – 0.10 to 0.06.
A terrific performance to get so far and no doubt disappointing that their opponents had a home venue at the other end of the country, but no doubt a very proud squad that are the Ulster Junior Ladies Football Champions 2015.
2015 saw competitive action in the Derry Leagues and Championships up to mid August for Senior competition and through to November for Under Age activity.
List of winners for 2015:
Senior Championship : Glen
Intermediate Championship : Unplayed – No representation in Ulster IFC competition
Junior A Championship : Steelstown
Junior B Championship : Slaughtmanus
Minor Championship : Steelstown
Under 16 A Championship : Ballymaguigan
Under 16 B Championship : Craigbane
Under 14 A Championship : Ballymaguigan
Under 14 B Championship : Glen
Under 14 Feile champions and Derry representatives in All Ireland Feile : Ballymaguigan
Glen accounted for Ballinascreen in a tense match in Magherafelt that was decided late in the 2nd half when Breena O’Loughlin scored the decisive goal in a match that although Ballinascreen trailed for the large part they just couldn’t close the gap. In a low scoring affair goals were always going to be crucial and Glen were more prolific when the chances presented themselves.
In the Junior A final the continual prompting and tactical nous of Steelstown’s Emma Doherty proved to be the undoing of a Magherafelt side that couldn’t seem to get any cohesion in their play on the day. The city side ran out comfortable winners in Celtic Park.
In the Junior B final Slaughtmanus proved to be too strong for a Dungiven side that promised more in their early season form. Clara Connor and Ciara Moore managed to dictate more of the play and this combined with the promptings of Shannon Watson from midfield Slaughtmanus ran out worthy winners.
St Trea’s Ballymaguigan competed in the All Ireland Under 14 Feile competition held in Wexford in June.
The girls went through their section undefeated, beating Blessington by 5.05 to 0.00, Glencar Manorhamilton 8.02 to 6.05 before completing their section with a 2.06 to 0.01 victory over Kilanerin.
They then accounted for Castlerahan on a scoreline of 3.02 to 0.03 in the Cup quarter final before eventually bowing out at the Cup semi final stage, losing out to St. Paul’s on a scoreline of 3.02 to 2.02.
A great experience for the panel of players and one which will no doubt live long in the memories of all concerned.
