July 11 - Ladies Senior Football: Boston Shamrocks v Tir na nOg
Laurie Ahern gets a shot in despite Jane O'Donoghue's attempt to block.
The Shamrocks dominated the first 15minutes of the game. In spite of their best efforts, Tir na nÓg could not make any inroads getting the ball past the half way line. After Sinead Fadden and Sarah Maloney each pointed for the Shamrocks, the Dorchester side booted some good chances wide of the posts. After 15 minutes Charlotte Delaney put the Shamrocks three points to no score ahead, but in truth there should have been more points registered for the ladies in green. Tir na nÓg managed to lift the siege in the second 15 minutes of the half. Andrea Bowie made some runs down the wing and Emma Conlon came into the game more. Niamh Coleman and Conlon each pointed, and Laurie Ahern put two nice points over the bar in succession. Delaney responded for the Shamrocks and at the break the sides were level at four points each.
