St Marys Charleville emerged deserving winners of the Munster Senior A post
primary schools competition when they overcame the spirited challenge of
Coachford CC. Despite blustery conditions both teams set out their defensive
stalls early in the game keeping scoring opportunities at a premium.
Coachford enjoyed the lions share of possession in the first half but were
unable to turn it into scores. Charleville defended well particularly
Rebecca Finn & Erin Reidy who curbed the scoring threat of Coachford
captain, Niamh Dilworth. Charleville were not getting any change out of
Coachford who defended well particularly Michelle Healy & Rosie O’Mahony who
covered back well from her midfield berth. Coachford keeper Marie Gleeson
kept her side in the game when on the 29th minute she reacted well to a
through ball to centre forward Darina OCallaghan saving an almost certain
goal. Half time saw both sides retire tied at 2 points each courtesy of
frees by Charlevilles Eimear Healy a
 nd Coachfords Joanne Casey.

Charleville upped the gears considerably at the start of the second half and
put the Coachford defence under severe pressure. Quick direct ball from
midfield to the half forward line saw Charleville grab an early initiative.
Firstly Rebecca Finn pointed a 31st min free and then disaster struck for
Coachford when a mix up in the full back line saw Kerrie Brosnan goal for
Charleville on the 35th minute. Points from Darina OCallaghan (39th) and an
Eimear Healy free (42nd) extended the Charleville lead and when Mariah Reidy
found herself at the receiving end of a long ball into the Coachford square
from Eimear Healy on the 44th minute she made no mistake flicking the ball
to the Coachford net. Further points by Kerry Brosnan and Rosemarie Rea put
the game beyond Coachford whose only score in the second half came from a
50th minute point by Joanne Casey

Charleville will now make the long trip north next month when they play
either Ballycastle or Magherafelt in the All Ireland semi final
