Defeat in U-13 A final
On the 10th of November 2004  the U-13A girls played their final against Holy Cross in Walsh Park. Portlaw had great support but couldn’t defeat the Holy Cross team. The girls came on to the field and did their exercises the referee blew his whistle and the game began. Portlaw won the ball but it was gone again. At this stage Holy Cross had scored their first point. The Portlaw goalie kicked it out to Zoe O Donoghue. Zoe caught the ball and tried to get a goal but it hit the post. The half time whistle blew and Holy Cross scored a goal. Portlaw then got the ball and Siobhan Whelan scored a goal. Holy Cross goalie kicked it out and the final whistle blew. Holy Cross had won by a single point. The Portlaw girls were very disappointed. We walked back to the dressing room and went back home.

INTO County Final 2005
The girls retained the Eastern section of the INTO seven-a-side football. The county final was played in Abbeyside against a very strong Lismore team. A great performance was given by each member but Lismore deservedly won the county final.
