Last Saturday Cavan defeated Dublin in the Girls All-Ireland U14 A Championship Final in Dunleer, Co. Louth by 4-06 to 2-09. Dublin fought back from five points down at half-time to level the game but Cavan replied with two goals from Bonnie McKiernan and Letiza Sheridan to help them to victory. This was a wonderful achievement for the the Breffni county and something which should do wonders for the future of football within the county.
On our latest Sportsgirls podcast pundit Deniese O’Flaherty spoke about how great it was to see Dublin being so gracious in defeat. After the game Dublin’s Twitter account posted “Congratulations Cavan on your U14 All Ireland victory today. Great game of football, a credit to both teams, their clubs and families. Enjoy the celebrations”
This is great to see and hopefully we will see more sportsmanship like this in the future.
