17/06/2013:  Hard luck to the Kildysart National School Girls team who lost the final today v Lisdoonvarna/Doolin/Kilshanny by scoreline of 3-8 to 5-6.  Kildysart got off to a great start and were winning 2-2 to 1 point, with Sarah McCann and Roisin Donnellan each scoring 1-1 in the 1st 5 minutes. The Lisdoonvarna schools then made a surge and scored 3-3 without reply to lead 3-4 to 2-2 with 4 minutes remaining in the opening half. Another goal by Sarah McCann however had Kildysart right back in it - only down by 2 points at the half.

Sarah McCann quickly levelled the score with 2 points on the restart. Lisdoon responded with a goal and a point to take the lead once again.  Kildysart never gave up and battled to the end, with just a goal separating the sides with 7 minutes remaining.  Lisdoon's final goal put them 6 ahead but Kildysart fought hard and put 2 more between the posts but were unable to close the gap.  Final score Lisdoonvarna/Doolin/Kilshanny 5-6 to Kildysart 3-8.  Congratulations to the girls team for reaching the final for the second year in a row - it's a great achievement. Well done to coaches Sean Eustace and Monica Lillis for a super job.
