Mourneabbey 3-5 St Val’s 2-7

MOURNEABBEY’S LADIES FOOTBALLERS have completed a remarkable three-in-a-row with a thrilling one-point victory in today’s Cork championship final against St Val’s.

The Clyda side have been defeated in the last two All-Ireland finals but keep coming back for more.

Today’s result also compounds the misery of Val’s who have now lost in three successive county finals to Mourneabbey who had county stars Ciara and Doireann O’Sullivan among their ranks.

It was an evening full of drama at CIT, Mourneabbey’s Ellie Jack getting the first goal of the game with just one minute on the clock.

Jack added another in the first half and Mourneabbey were well in control at half-time, leading 3-3 to 1-4.

The champions couldn’t shake off Briege Corkery’s Val’s though, who kept chipping away at their lead.

However, after a nervy finale Mourneabbey held on for another impressive victory.
