CARNACON CONCLUDED A difficult campaign by hammering Knockmore to take the Mayo ladies SFC title this afternoon.

Eight players from the club departed the Mayo panel during the summer, kicking off a lengthy dispute which saw the club fine, and the players suspended on grounds of bringing the game into disrepute.

The reigning All-Ireland champions had an incredible 33-points to spare in the final, winning on a scoreline of 9-10 to 0-4. They showed no mercy as they collected the 19th senior title in the club’s history.

Cora Staunton, Erina Flannery (2), Amy Dowling hit the net in the first-half as Carnacon led by 4-2 to 0-2 at half-time and they added a further five goals after the break. 

“This has been a long, hard road,” captain Michelle McGing said in her acceptance speech.

“But do you know what? This is sweet.”
