Calry St Josephs – Shamrock Gaels Match Prediction | 29-09-2019 11:00

After a dominant first half with a strong breeze behind us Shamrock Gaels went into the break leading however Molaise Gaels came out strong in the second half to see them take the lead with 10mins to go and continue their dominance to the final whistle. Well done to all 22 girls who put on a fantastic effort all year. Hard luck to our u14 girls who were defeated by St Molaise Gaels in the B Cup final. Thanks to their coaches also. The Shamrock Gaels girl's fought to the end however it just wasn't to be today.

Calry/St. They have won the last 7 Sligo Senior Hurling Championships and played in 12 of the last 13 finals, winning in 2005 until 2009 and again from 2011 to 2017 (Minus 2010). They won the Sligo Intermediate Football Championship in 2004 & 2014 and came Runners Up in 1988, 1990 & 2013 and won Sligo Junior Football Championship in 1976 & 1987 and were Runners Up in 1983 & 1984. They followed up that victory with a double double by winning both Provincial and County Championships in 2013. The club was formerly known as Calry Gaels until it became Calry/St. Reduced to 13 men, with two players sent off, they clawed back a deficit of 5 points to tie the match and go on to beat Michel Breathnach of the Galway Gaeltacht in extra-time, 3-9 to 2-10. In 2009 they won the Connacht Junior Club Hurling Championship beating Galway side Skehana 1-09 to 0-10 in the final having lost to them the year before and they repeated that feat again in 2012 by beating the same opposition from before, Skehana. Joseph's in 1987 after a re-organisation of the GAA structures in the Sligo urban area. Joseph's is a Gaelic Athletic Association club based in Calry and the northern ward of Sligo, ire. Their most recent victory in the Connacht Junior Hurling Championship came in a pulsating victory in 2016.
