Ladies Minor League Wrap Up
The first piece of minor silverware was decided this week when Clann na Gael defeated Strabane 6-11 to 3-4 in the grade 4 League Final at Urney. The winners laid the platform for their victory in the first half as they established a healthy lead and were then able to keep their opponents at arms length for the remainder of the contest. It was a good all round team display from the winners as they deservedly took the silverware against a gallant Sigersons side.
