All-Ireland defeats for Bonds Glen and Bready

A century from Clontarf skipper Julie McNally saw the Leinster side claim the All-Ireland under-13 cup this afternoon with a 91-run win over hosts Bready at Magheramason.

Julie retired unbeaten on 100- a brilliant innings made from just 65 balls and containing 14 fours.

Genevieve Morrisey added 26, Sinead Thomson 18 and Gemma Sargent 15 as the visitors posted a daunting 196-3 from their 20 overs.

Bready battled hard in reply- Millie Spence making 35 at the top of the order and Sophie Hamilton 15, but they never really looked like causing an upset.

There was a consolation for the North West side at the end of the game as they were presented with the domestic under-15 championship after going through the 2022 season with an unbeaten record.

Earlier in the day, Bonds Glen were beaten in the semi-final of the under-15 cup, also by Clontarf.

Hannah Skinner made 27, Jessica Cooke 20 and Lucy Thompson 11 as the Bee Gees made 94-4; Alyssa Pasley and Gemma Sargent both returning figures of 2-14 for the visitors.

‘Tarf had little difficulty in rattling off the required runs- Alice Walsh with 48 not out and Lucy Barry making an unbeaten 34 in a 10-wicket victory.
