Derry Ladies JFC Final
Limavady 4-11 Dungiven 3-10 AET
While Rory wasn’t firing at The Open, the McIlroys of Limavady shot them to junior championship glory.
A hat-trick of goals for Leonie McIlroy and a late strike from Toireasa Marie McIlroy fired the Wolfhounds, in their first year back in ladies’ football, to the trophy.
It took over 70 minutes to separate them from Dungiven – something that was scarcely predicted given Limavady led by seven with less than ten minutes of normal time to go.
But, there has to be a loser, and despite the bravest of showing from St Canice’s, it was the girls in yellow who struck gold.
