Ladies News

Carrick RFC ladies lost to Sligo last Sunday 36-0 in Leitrim Village. Sligo had too much pace out wide and their greater experience told too in the tight exchanges. Carrick’s girls’ performance was not without its positives however, and while unable to score Martina Flattery led a defensive effort which denied Sligo several more cracks at the Carrick goal-line. As promising as the on-field enthusiasm was the swell of support which turned out sideline for the encounter.

Training continues Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7.30pm.

Carrick-on-Shannon: Martina Flattery, Claire Mc Loughlin, Marie Clerkin, Aine Shanley, Ornaith Grimes, Kelly Richardson, Claire Carty, Teresa Mylott, Bridie Hughes, Nuala Cullen, Carina Lennon, Maeve Rowley, Maeve McKeown, Aoife Kelly, Emma Murphy, Cliodhna O Donnell, Niamh Spellman and Claire McDermott.
