Galbally Nov 2

Galbally NS Sports - Girls Football Final: Our girls contested the ‘A’ Football Final against Bruff on Thursday 24th October in Martinstown. Weather was very wet and conditions on the field were not favourable. From the very start the girls were up for this game. Bruff were strong with some very good players who defended really well. We had a good lead at half time and went on to eventually win the game. The girls will now go on to represent South Limerick in the Celtic Image Shield in UL in November. This is a great honour and well done to the girls.
