Soccer: Kilkenny duo shine for Leinster schools

Leinster Schools

The Leinster Schools team who won the interprovincial tournament

Two Kilkenny schoolgirls delivered a series of top class performances as they helped Leinster soar to glory.

Ellen Molloy and Freya De Mange, students at Presentation Kilkenny, were part of the Leinster squad who won the FAI Schools interprovincial series in Dublin. The girls helped their province secure the title with a 100% record as they beat Ulster 2-1, Connacht 3-1 and Munster 2-0.

The duo could end their schools season with international honours. National coach Richard Berkeley will select a panel of 30 players for an initial assessment in December.

The Republic of Ireland Under-15 Girls Schools selection will travel to Salou in April for the Bob Docherty Cup.
