Aherlow GAA Footballing Ladies

On a foggy misty morning in Ballyagran on 15 October 2011, ladies from the Glen of Aherlow, brought a little bit of heaven down to earth, by capturing the Munster Junior A Club Championship. Ballyagran, on the Cork / Limerick border was a somewhat difficult place to find, but it transpired to be a magnificently appointed venue.
After a ding dong first half, the Dromina (Co.Cork) girls took a very commanding seven point lead early in the second half. But then the fighting spirit and the considerable ability of the girls from the Galtees came into play. They gradually whittled away the Cork lead and after hitting the woodwork twice, Aherlow ran out two point winners.
It was an historic occasion, as it was the first time ever that an Aherlow side won a Munster club championship. Great credit is due to the Management team of Pat Moroney, Eamon Mullins and Lar Ivory, but above all to the panel of girls themselves who brought such glory and honour to the Glen of Aherlow.
