Donaghy Cup stays in Dublin   21/03/2015

St Patrick’s College put in a hugely impressive performance as they claimed the first of the Ladies Football Higher Education Colleges championships at Cork IT on Saturday, the Donaghy Cup.

While they took a while to get going, Pat’s still led by 0-3 to no score after 20 minutes thanks to points from Ailbhe Boyle (two) and Niamh Kelly. Rachael Bridges added another as half-time approached before two goals in quick succession, from Niamh Kelly and Caroline Sharkey, put them firmly in control.

Another Niamh Kelly point gave them 2-5 at the interval and the Mayo attacker was on fire in the second half, scoring two more goals as they ran out comfortable winners. Aisling Cull got Liverpool Hope’s sole score late on.
