TERMON manager Francie Friel has paid tribute to his Senior Ladies team after they won the All-Ireland Senior Ladies title in Tuam today.
The Co Donegal and Ulster Champions beat Mourneabbey by five points in the showpiece final today.
And captain fantastic Geraldine McLaughlin was the star of the show, hitting three great goals in the process.
Her manager Francie Friel paid tribute to her, revealing she was playing with an injured knee.
“She is just scary,” said proud Francie
“She has a sore knee; she is playing with a cartilage gone in her knee. Dr Tony Delap in Gaoth Dobhair gave her an injection and thank God it worked and I want to thank him for that.
“I made Geraldine the captain ten months ago and I told her I’d take her to an all-Ireland and she and all the girls have worked so hard this year. I’ve given up 10 months of my life for this and you get your reward in the end.
“We hit a purple patch in the second half and it’s important you push on when you get those periods in the game and the girls did just that.
“The biggest belief came after winning Ulster. We have girls taking days off work, flying home from Scotland and England for games; these are the rewards you get.”
“The girls have given great satisfaction to the parish and the club. I’m very proud of all of them.”Tags:
