O Donovan Rossa clinched the New York Ladies Junior Football title recently marking the club’s first piece of silverware since the lady’s team was established in 2018.
With dominant displays from forwards, Barbara Ward and Klara O Sullivan, Dermot York’s side ran out comprehensive winners over a young Shannon Gaels team on a score line of 4-15 to 3-6.
Ward notched 2-6 while O Sullivan bagged 1-4 as ODR came out on top in the battle of the Queens-based sides.
Perhaps the loudest cheer of the day came for player and all-round club organizer Amy Brett who had spinal surgery just a few weeks earlier
Brett came on for a cameo appearance for the last minute which lifted the ODR crowd to its feet.
The ODR ladies set up is anchored by a massive social club of nearly 130 girls – many of whom made their presence heard in the Gaelic Park stand for the final.
Michael caught up with Brett, Captain Lauryn Hollywood and Club Chairperson Mary Egan after the game to get their thoughts.
