On Saturday St. Peters Dunboyne Ladies took on St. Maurs the Dublin champions in the Leinster Ladies Intermediate final in Coralstown Kinnegad gaa grounds In good football conditions both teams served up a cracking game in front of a large vocal crowd. An unusual fixture as it featured both the 2015 ( Dunboyne ) and 2016 I( St. Maurs ) All ireland junior champions. Maurs had a bright opening playing with the wind they opened a 2-1 leads with points from Olivia Leonard and carthy, Julie Kavanagh responding for Dunboyne. Dunboyne were working hard throughout the pitch and now started to put there passes together and created a number of excellent changes which resulted in two very well work goals from Fiona O\'Neill and Emma Duggan. Dunboyne further stretched the lead with scores from Dunboyne\'s 6 backs were competing we\'ll for every ball and with Dee Blayney and Julie Kavanagh winning a lot of ball in midfield the forwards were getting plenty of good ball. With the wind at their back Maurs started to press forward towards the end of the half and reduced the gap to 4 points Dunboyne snuffed out a number of goal chances for Maurs, particularly with 2 great blocks from Rachel Mc Dermott With a 4 point lead and the wind behind them Dunboyne looked sure to push on in the 2nd half. But Maurs had other ideas and came out in the 2nd half and took the game too Dunboyne and opened the scoring. For Dunboyne a long range effort from Fiona o\'Neill found the Maurs net but Maurs came straight back and had their best spell of the game registering 1-2 without reply and ran at dunboyne at every opportunity. The lead stood at 3 points with 10 mins to go, Dunboyne had now weathered the storm and started to use the extra defender well with Annie Moffatt and Beibhinn Hickey picking up a lot of ball and SineadHackett and Emma Duggan available for the ball coming out of defence. Shelly Melia and Aoife Thompson worked hard and won some crucial kick outs in the last 10 mins.

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.
