Unfortunately, due to a lack of interest among the young ladies of the Connemara region, two of Connemara’s most promising Ladies players have had to move to pastures new to fulfill their potential.
Indeed, both Kaetlin Wallace and Darwyn O’Halloran have enjoyed good starts with their new clubs Westport and Castlebar respectively.
Wallace’s good form has been rewarded with a call up to the Connacht U18 squad and O’Halloran has been on song with the boot for her club, Castlebar.
In a team that contains legendary Mayo Ladies Footballer Cora Staunton, O’Halloran’s Castlebar have been in imperious form and just last Sunday hammered NUIG 48-0 with O’Halloran boasting a 100% record with the boot, kicking seven goals from seven attempts.
To date, from thirty five kicks this season O’Halloran has been successful thirty two times.
It is encouraging to see that Connemara are producing quality players, from both sexes.
