The Underdogs series drew to a close last Saturday, December 11th, when the final team took on the top Ladies Gaelic football team in the country (the ultimate underdogs), this year’s TG4 All-Ireland Senior Champions, Meath. The match was played at the Donaghmore-Ashbourne Gaa club in County Meath at 1.30pm with a deferred broadcast to air on TG4’s Peil na mBan Beo at 7.15 pm that evening.
While the game did not go The Underdogs way, there were great celebrations after the match for Ballyboden’s Laura Basquel when she was named Réalta na Sraithe, Player of the series! Congratulations to Laura. Well deserved.
Laura has been a great ambassador for our club throughout the 6 week series and is a super role model for our younger club members. To catch a clip of Laura’s post match interview, see here
