Queen's Ladies Gaelic Football Club 1995/1996

Chairperson: Denise Martin Carrickmore
Secretary: Hayley Boyle Galbally Oonagh Celts
Tresurer: Lorraine McCaffery Lisnaskea

Queens', UUJ and Coleraine all finished on equal points at the end of the league fixtures, with QUB having recorded a first ever victory over the Poly firsts. They were not to be 'caught on the hop' however and eliminated Queens' in the League playoff at St. Pauls.

St. Pauls in Belfast was again the venue for another Jordanstown-Queens' encounter in the Dowd Cup. Hosted by St. Mary's College, QUB fully availed of all the entertainment and provided some of their own, as a first round defeat cut short any hopes of playing football. Some consolation was gained as we won the McNally Plate. However Queens' didn't really get much value from this particular piece of silverware, and would like to take this opportunity to thank St. Mary's boys for looking after it for a whole year for us.


QUB's O'Connor Cup run didn't take us any further than the Dub, again the bridesmaids thanks to a one point defeat by Coleraine. Queen's did however participate in the Freshers All-Ireland 7-a-side Blitz in UCD, performing admirably, despite their eighth player lying at the sideline with food poisoning!!

The highlight for the year was the Ulster 7-a-sides which we hosted. Beating UUJ 1,2,and 3, then defeating a strong Coleraine side, Queens' won the 'Fly Cup'. (Coleraine, however made a breakthrough of their own, later in the Fly...they were cleaning up glass for a week Catherine!!)
