The footballers of St. Clare’s CS Manorhamilton can officially call themselves All-Ireland Championships tonight after news has emerged that the Ladies Gaelic Football Association ruled against the appeal of St. Mary’s HS Midleton.

The Leitrim Observer understands that the LGFA Central Council ruled tonight (Friday) against the appeal of St. Mary’s HS Midleton against their disqualification from the competition after the Cork school failed to field for the final on Sunday April 13.
