The first Sunday in December means ladies’ club final day and so it was again today as Mayo’s Carnacon once again went toe-to-toe with Donaghmoyne of Monaghan at Pairc Sean MacDiarmada in Carrick-on-Shannon. It was a repeat of last year’s final between these two strong rivals but whereas the Monaghan girls came out on top twelve months ago, today was Carnacon’s day, as they triumphed on a 1-6 to 0-8 scoreline. RTÉ’s report on the game is here.
Cora Staunton was, needless to say, to the fore once again for Carnacon, registering all but one point of her team’s total, including the game’s only goal which she dispatched emphatically from the penalty spot:

Today’s victory means that Carnacon have now amassed an astonishing total of five All-Ireland club titles in just eleven years, with today’s win being their second in the last three years. The glory days for Mayo ladies’ GAA just go on and on – hearty congrats to Carnacon for adding yet another chapter to this success story today.
