Great win for Under-14 Girls away to Sligo

37

Connacht Under-14 Girls League

Sligo RFC 17, Creggs RFC 45.

The Creggs Under-14 Girls team continued their impressive start to the new season with an away win over Sligo last Sunday.

Played in lovely conditions, the girls scored 7 tries on the day from Jemima Adams Verling and Sarah Purcell with Sofra Hession converting 5 of those tries.

While the scoreline looks comprehensive, this was a very competitive game. Only that Creggs took their chances combined with some outstanding defence near their own line kept out Sligo out on four occasions. Great combined defensive work from Siofra hession, Darcey Farnon, Stacey Corbally, Shauna Walsh, Isabelle Quinn, Leah Heavey, Meave kilcommons, and Grace Killian keep Sligo out.

The club thanks to all the parents that travelled to Sligo to support the team.

Creggs Rugby: Beibhinn Maher, Siofra Hession, Jemima Adams Verling, Michaela Gillooly, Darcy Farnon, Sienna Deveney, Stacey Corbally, Shauna Walsh, Grace Killian, Isabelle Quinn, Sofie Trayers, Leah heavey, Emily Doorly, Rachel Slattery, Sarah Purcell, and Meave Kilcommons.

Rugby is delighted to be opening up again soon and yesterday in Creggs RFC we had a unique presentation organised by Anthony Cahill from Cahill's Supervalu Castlerea.
Dr John Dillon from Castlerea proudly wore the green of Connacht back in the day and one of the his many achievements was to be part of a winning Connacht side against Ulster in Belfast in 1958.
When Connacht beat Ulster at Ravenhill in October 2018 there were two Roscommon players Denis Buckley and Jack Carty on the pitch that night, winning at Ravenhill for the first time since Dr John Dillon and his team mates some 60 years earlier thus joining a very elite group. Denis and Jack proudly presented Dr Dillon with a framed memento of his victory and a number 12 Connacht jersey as worn by Bundee Aki.
Owing to Covid 19 restrictions only a small number of people could attend including members of Dr Dillon's family. Creggs RFC was delighted to host the presentation and very appreciative of Anthony Cahill who organised the occasion and the beautiful framed memorabilia of the 1958 match.
