Joint manager Barry McWeeney is hopeful that Oughteragh Gaels Cox’s Steakhouse Ladies Intermediate Final victory may be just the start of the something special.

Oughteragh Gaels stormed to a 4-18 to 0-6 victory over St. Francis last Saturday in Cloone and Barry told the Observer “I can’t get over how young they are, it was only a few days ago I found out how young Roisin and Eilish actually are, they are fantastic footballers and then you add in the likes of Sarah McLoughlin and Louise Gallagher, they are just fantastic footballers.

“There is a lot of young girls there and they are going to get a lot of lessons along the way but that is where you want to be, up there with the likes of Dromahair, Aughawillan, all these teams.”

It was a disappointing result for St. Francis but manager Eamon McGowan stressed his team would come back - “I know it is very hard at this moment but we still have to see can we try and rally them and try and progress a bit more next year.”
