Carndonagh Community School’s Erin ‘Fildara’ McLaughlin netted one of the goals on Sunday as the Republic of Ireland U15 Girls select defeated MGL 4-2.
The game was being used as an assessment by Richard Berkeley with the Bob Docherty Cup looming for his team.
The Irish started brilliantly with Niamh Fahey’s niece Anna hitting a well-executed brace for the St. Paul’s SS, Oughterard student.
The MGL reacted via Shauna Carroll who slotted home confidently to make it 2-1.
Anna Fahey then hit the woodwork before McLaughlin (above, middle) made it 3-1 with a superb effort.
Again the MGL responded through Emily Whelan making it 3-2.
Manorhamilton star Muireann Devaney wrapped up proceedings for the Republic of Ireland to finish 4-2.
