It wasn’t meant to be for the Castlebar Mitchels ladies today in Ballinasloe today but there is no doubt they have become even greater role models for the future of ladies football in not only Mayo but all over the country.

The girls fought left it all out the field today but just came short by two points.

They have brought great pride to Castlebar leading up to the match and have brought great pride to ladies football on their road to the final.

The Mitchels ladies had a fair fight against St Sylvesters to get on the scoreboard and made a great comeback in the second half and were unfortunate to fall at the last hurdle.
Grainne Flynn commenced the scoreline for Mitchels in the twenty-third minute which started the drive for the Mitchels come back.
Kate Sullivan’s goal proved to be the deciding factor by the final whistle which saw captain Danielle Lawless lift silverware in Duggan Park.
Ballinasloe wasn’t shy of the red and amber colours as many Castlebar natives made the journey to support their ladies. 
Kate Sullivan’s goal proved to be the deciding factor by the final whistle.
In the GAA and LGFA it’s only recently we have started to realise how brilliant are ladies footballers are in this country.
The Castlebar Mitchels ladies brought great pride to Castlebar and brought a whole new meaning to being a woman in gaelic football.
We always get caught up in the face to see where the Sam Maguire cup will end up after the end of each GAA season and forget how brilliant our ladies footballers are.
Even though the Mitchels ladies didn’t bring home silverware, they have become even bigger inspirations to the future of the LGFA.
Commiserations to the girls but as like every setback in life we get back up and start again.
