ST.JOSEPH'S SECONDARY SCHOOL, BALLYBUNION, MUNSTER CHAMPIONS

Congratulations to Miss Costello, Miss Leane, Elaine Ryall and Alannah
Whelan members of the Kerry Junior County team who are now Munster
Champions. They with their team mates played Cork in Killeedy, Co Limerick
on Sunday last May 14th. It was all level on the scoreboard at full time
though they were 3 points ahead at half time. The game then went to extra
time and Kerry came away as winners on the narrowest of margins , one point
separating the teams. Well done to all the players as their hard work rate
and dedication aid off on Limerick soil.
