The month of May began well for our lady footballers. On Friday last in Boherlahan they defeated Cappawhite 5-10 to 2-05 to become Tipperary U16B ladies football champions. Last year the same u16s, or six of them, were part of the team which won the U16C county title. Cappawhite didn’t take their first half chances having 13 wides. Mullinahone led 2-01 to 0-04 at the break. Cappa began the second half well scoring 1-01 to put them into the lead. The local mentors took corrective action and Mullinahone began to dominate again on the field and on the scoreboard leaving Cappa to get a consolation goal near the end. Final score Mullinahone 5-10, Cappawhite 2-05. Mullinahone: Nicola O’Dwyer, Meibh Maher, Aine Dunne, Shauna Kennedy, Alice Browning (3-03), Nicole Shelly (C), Eimear Horan, Aoife Skelly, Jane Walker, Grainne Horan, Caoimhe O’Shea, Aoibhe O’Shea (1-03) Michaela Moloney, Valentena Kavanagh (0-03) Kate White. Subs: Tara Gayson (1-00), Gemma Dunne. Mentors: Ann Marie McGuire and Noreen Horan.
