Ballina Killaloe U18 Girls League Champions

BallinaKillaloe RFC secure first ever Munster title win.

BallinaKillaloe U18 Girls won their Munster League Final this Saturday in keenly fought and highly entertaining match vs Clonakilty RFC at Fermoy Showgrounds.
This is the first ever Munster title for BKRFC after previous Youths rugby success in North Munster competitions.
BKRFC started off the scoring with a well taken try from Player of the match, Tova McMahon bursting through the Clonakilty defence after a quick tap penalty. Clonakilty were not for wilting, and immediately responded with a line break out wide on the right, their winger rounding the defence to score under the posts, and draw the game 7-7 with less that 8 minutes played.
BallinaKillaloe however struck back straight away, regaining possession in the Clonakilty 22, and after a period of pressure, scoring out wide on the right.
The half continued with BallinaKillaloe rebuffing Clonakilty pressure and twice breaking downfield, through good recycling, switching the play to the right and the left, scoring two more unconverted tries to leave it 22-7 going into the final play of the half.
A blindside break down the right, by Rebecca Rogers powering through a couple of tackles to score under the posts finished an excellent half of rugby, 29-7 to BallinaKillaloe at the break.
Clonakilty were never going to give up, and the first 15 minutes of the second half saw continued Clonakilty possession and pressure in the BallinaKillaloe 22, with Clonakilty crossing the tryline 3 times yet unfortunately not scoring to last ditch tackling and a never say die attitude from BallinaKillaloe, holding the ball up twice and forcing a knock on when a try seemed more than certain.
As is their want, BallinaKillaloe regained possession and slowly worked the ball up the pitch, through strong carries from all the players especially Tova at 7 and Grainne Mahony at 10. In truth, all BallinaKillaloe players stepped up to the mark today, especially Zoe Loughran, who eventually succumbed to cramp near the end.
Two more BallinaKillaloe tries put a gloss on the final score, 39-7 but that’s not to say Clonakilty were outplayed, they fought to the bitter end, giving it all on the pitch and after.
Both sides are a great advertisement for Munster girls rugby.
Special mention to all the parents, families and supporters who made the trip to Fermoy, many thanks to all at Munster Rugby, and to Brendan Foley for presenting the Player of the match awards.

Maeve Óg earns 1st Senior cap

Congratulations to our former Girl’s Player Maeve Óg O’Leary who earned her 1st, of many it’s hoped!, Senior women’s International Cap in the Ireland vs USA Rugby match at the weekend.

Maeve Óg first started playing rugby with Ballina Killaloe RFC and St. Anne’s Community College only a few years ago and has had a stellar rise through the rugby ranks, earning her 1st Munster cap earlier this year too.  She currently plays for Blackrock RFC while in college in Dublin.

Maeve Óg was always destined to be a success on the sporting field having previously competed with Ireland Softball teams, as well as winning All Ireland, Munster and County medals with Ballina Camoige GAA and St. Anne’s CC Camoige.
