Talking Points:
This was the 5 game of the group series for the inter championship After 4 comprehensive wins Ashbourne inflicted our first championship loss in a thrilling game played in very good conditions. Ashbourne opened the first half very strongly playing with a slight breeze they hit their stride immediately and raced in to a 6-1 lead. Dunboyne settled into the game and with the help of a Vikki Wall goal got back on terms. The powerful running of Ashbourne continued to cause problems for dunboyne along with the accuracy in taking scores. Late in the 2nd half we lost Julie Kavanagh to a leg injury. Vikki struck for our 2nd goal just before the break to leave us 2 pts down at half time. We started the 2nd half in positive fashion and got level quickly and then got our noses in front. However ashbourne resoponded well and the game entered a frantic 15 mins or so. We had Dee Blayney yellow carded but even down to 14 we fought hard and played good football as did ashbourne Alison pulled off an excellent save from what looked like a goal for Ashbourne, but their continued pressure did lead to a goal putting 3 points between the teams. We continued to press forward and in the closing minutes hit the cross bar twice to be denied goals and ultimately a draw. The girls will take a lot from this game, and with 2 games remaining are well positioned for semi final place


Established in 1902 by Bob O’Keeffe, the hurling section of the club has been in existence for more than 100 years. It wasn’t until the late 1940s that the game of Gaelic Football was properly organised within the club and in 1952 it became known as St. Peter’s GAA Club. Today both football and hurling, along with the camogie and ladies football sections, are thriving.
