Gaelscoil Ultain claimed the Girls’ 2012 Cumann na mBunscol Mini Sevens title after a thrilling day of football in Páirc Uí Néill, Clontibret.
Eight school teams had made their way to the finals’ day following regional blitzes.
Loughmourne, Glaslough, Magherarney and Scoil Rois were placed in Group A with Mullaghrafferty, Bunscoil Lughaidh Naofa, Latton and Gaelscoil Ultain in Group B. Scoil Rois beat off stiff competition in Group A to make the final while Gaelscoil Ultain made it through in Group B, having squeezed past Mullaghrafferty by a narrow margin in the opening game of the day.
The all Irish final between Gaelscoil Ultain and Scoil Rois was a ding dong battle with extra time needed to separate the sides, Gaelscoil Ultain eventually coming out on top on a 2-9 to 3-1 scoreline. Members of the Gaelscoil Ultain team look forward to the opportunity of playing in Croke Park at half-time in the big championship games this summer.
Adrian Kelly, Cathaoirleach Cumann na mBunscol, presented Corn Shinéad Ní Ghallchóir to the winning captain, Morgan Nic Cionna.
