Congratulations to 3rd year student, Saoirse Healey pictured here having captained the Galway U14 Soccer team who won the prestigious U14 Gaynor Cup in UL this June. The Gaynor Cup sees girls from all the leagues in Ireland representing their counties in an FAI run tournament played over 4 days. Saoirse led the girls off with a double goal strike in their first game against Wexford before accounting for some strong opposition including the Dublin Metropolitan league who are serial winners of the competition. The final was a first time all Connacht affair against local rivals Sligo-Leitrim which Galway won with 1-0 is a very close game. FAI Chief Executive John Delaney was on hand to present the cup to Saoirse.
Saoirse plays her club football with Cregmore Claregalway FC where she made it an incredible year by also capturing the All Ireland Club u14 title where Saoirse produced another double goal strike in the All –Ireland final to see off the Dublin opposition.
