This was a fantastic Achievement by this Talented Bunch of Girls who have already won the Division 3 National Feile Title earlier this year. Great credit must go the Mentors of this team for all there hard work and dedication.
The team is managed By Brid Curran with selectors Marguriete Murphy, Billy Donnelly, Andrew Furlong and Trained by Benny McCabe.
These Two sides had met previously in the County Feile Final with Shelmalier having to dig very deep to see of the challenge of a very determined and well coached Ballyhouge side.
Shelmalier then went on to represent Wexford in the National Feile Competition where they brought home the Division 3 title.
The under 14 Championship is run on a league Basis with the top 4 teams playing semi finals and Final. Ladies football was the ultimate winner on Tuesday night with both teams serving up some fantastic moves and interplays, indeed the Wexford Datapac Intermediate Team players were in at the Final and many of them were amazed at the standard and had to be corrected as some thought that it was the U16 County Final.
It is important that this bunch of girls be coached and blended with the current players and their skills further developed as new blood and youth is always the life line of any club. The future looks bright with this talent shining through.
