Mixed fortunes for magic Mary's
St Mary's Baldoyle were competing in the finals of the SSA Division One last week at both Under-16 and Under-19 level.
The under-19 team, reigning champions, were defending their crown against Maryfield College.
Mary's, in a battling display, lost to Maryfield, 27-14, despite the best efforts of the likes of Leanne Bickerdike, Shauna McCourt and Ciara Richardson.
The Under-16 team had lost narrowly in the final last year to Skerries Community College, so revenge was on the cards as they faced the same opponents again.
Captain Ciara Byrne was the model of consistency, giving a committed performance, as her team-mates Kate Mulligan, Carla Wickham, Zoe Johnston, Melissa Corrigan and Emma Doyle all played their part in a 28-13 victory.
