Gleann Cholm Cille Women's Football Team

On our way up the lane last sunday (17th) to the cottage we heard a fearsome din of car horns, whistles and trumpets so we stopped to see what all the commotion was about. We thought it may have been a wedding party but were surprised instead to see a motorcade returning triumphant from the Women's County Football Championships.

The local team had beaten their long time rivals, Kilcar, in a closely contested match: the final result being 3-7, 4-7 . These team members are so obviously delighted at the outcome.

Some of the team members celebrating by drinking champagne (?) from the winners' trophy in Biddy's Bar, where the craic was ninety.
