Ladies Soccer- History was made on Monday evening when the women’s team won the cup on penalties after the game ended 1 each. The team were made to work extremely hard against a very strong Thomastown team. Victory means that the Tullaroan women’s team are the first team to win all three trophies in the same session which is a remarkable achievement considering the team was only formed in 2006. Great credit must go to Ady and Gerry O’Dea the team managers and to Ashling O’Dea for looking after the team so well. The team is built around a very strong defense, a strike force with an eye for goal and a midfield that never gives up. Congratulations to them from all within the soccer club.
