National School Shield Final
Bornacoola played Drumshanbo in the final of the Girls National School Shield competition. In a thrilling game, the Bors came from eight points down to level the game in the final minute. However, the Drumshanbo girls rallied to the winning score at the final whistle to cling on for a 6-8 to 5-10 victory. Nonetheless, it was a terrific performance from the Bornacoola girls who have excelled all year under the tutorship of Orla Bohan.
