Tir na nOg Make Ladies Final

Tir na nOg made the Ladies Senior Football final with a one point victory over the Boston Shamrocks and a toss of a coin. The win put the Brighton based side level on points with the Shamrocks at the top of the table. The coin toss decided which side would advance to the final, and Tir na nOg dealt a double loss to the Shamrocks on the day - the coin landed in favour of the game winners. The Shamrocks will meet Roscommon in the semi-final in two weeks time, with Tir na nOg awaiting the winners on the final the following weekend.

I was involved in a junior game with the Connemara Gaels myself which was played at the same time, and unfortunately did not witness what sounded like a very exciting game between the ladies teams.

Also, the Senior Hurling match between Tipperary and Wexford was postponed until Saturday next at 2:30 since early in the first half, a severe thunderstorm hit and there was no way the game could continue.

Incidentally, some of the things going on with the Gaels bode well for the future of the club and in a wider sense for the GAA in the Boston area. More about that later once the season is done after the first weekend in September, when the North American Finals are held in Canton.
