Heartbreak for Tourlestrane in All-Ireland Final

There was heartbreak for Tourlestrane ladies in Sunday’s All Ireland junior club final against Glanmire from Cork ran out deserving 0-22 to 3-11 winners in highly entertaining match, played in front of a large crowd at Ballinslaoe.

Glanmire’s Kate Hannon scored 0-11, collecting the Player of the Match award but Tourlestrane’s ‘Katie’ also shone as she contributed 1-8 of Tourlestrane’s tally.

It was Kate Hannon versus Katie Walsh in the first half and although the Sligo county star hit 1-5, no other Tourlestrane player managed a score before the break and they trailed by 0-13 to 1-5 at half-time.

There was a minute’s silence for the late Kathleen Walsh before the start, she was a grandmother to five of the Tourlestrane panel, including Katie Walsh.
