On this evening it was not meant to be. Our girls fought well to the end and never gave up with great performances from Sinead Barrett and Meadhbh Kissane they tried til the bitter end. Well done to all girls on reaching the semi final stages of this competition and we wish Ballymac the very best in the final.
