Mourneabbey earn place in All Ireland Final

On Sunday 16th November, Mourneabbey hosted Sarsfields, Mountmellick and this game was a feast of football from the off. There were hundreds of supporters there from all over Cork to support this Mourneabbey side on a historical day for the club reaching their first ever Senior Club All Ireland Semi Final.

The game started well for Mourneabbey with some fast & open football with Brid O’Sullivan, Maire O’Callaghan & Doireann O’Sullivan pointing and Mourneabbey edged 4 points up. Sarsfields had experience on their side and settled into the game and attacked to level the game. Mourneabbey pushed ahead again with another 3 points but Sarsfields answered to level the game. In the first 18 minutes, the sides were level all but 3 times which shows the quality and determinedness of both teams. Sarsfields looked dangerous near goal  in the first half but failed to finish and at half time the score was Mourneabbey 0-10 to Sarsfields 0-9.

On the restart, Mourneabbey turned it up a gear to produce an action packed second half. Sarsfields, Jenny McEvoy was sinbinned for a leg block resulting in a Laura Fitzgerald penalty belting the crossbar. A few minutes later,  Meabh O’Sullivan was sinbinned harshly after a 50/50 ball resulting in Sarsfields penalty. Wing forward,Roberta Harrington, bravely, stepped on the goal line to attempt a penalty save but Rachel Williams shot missed the mark. Mourneabbey then stepped up the tempo on the 44th minute with Brid O’Sullivan making a stunning run from the middle of the field to blast a goal to the top of the net. Unfortunately, Alison McEvoy got a facial injury defending this goal in a collision her team mate and was stretchered off the field. There was a 10 minute lull in play while an ambulance was arranged for the Sarsfields wing back. The Laois side did well on the restart and looked dangerous. Mourneabbey were defending tenaciously but with Ciara O’Sullivan sinbinned in the closing minutes, it looked like the Laois side were on an upward surge. Tracey Lawlor kicked two frees in the final minutes but Sarsfields didn’t get a shot at a vital goal. Mourneabbey grasped this well deserved victory and the game finished 1-14 to 0-15. There were outstanding performances all over the field on the day with CathyAnn Stack, Brid O’Sullivan, Roisin O’Sullivan, Doireann O’Sullivan & Aisling O’Sullivan featuring.
