Ballyroan Ladies 2-16 Graiguecullen 3-5
Laois Ladies League Division 2 Final
Ballyroan Ladies were celebrating at the weekend as they claimed glory in the Division 2 league final.
Noel Delaney’s charges were up against a Graiguecullen side who had just been defeated in the Intermediate final by Shanahoe.
The young Ballyroan side had nine minors starting and they set their stall out early by taking a 0-9 to 0-2 lead at half time.
Graiguecullen came back at Ballyroan with three second half goals but the victors kept them at bay with two of their own.
They came via Kate Whelan and Roisin Fitzgerald and were enough to see them win by seven in the end.

Meanwhile, the Division 1 final between Portlaoise and Sarsfields did not take place.
This would have been a repeat of the senior championship final from a few weeks ago which Sarsfields won.
Portlaoise were unable to field a team and Sarsfields were awarded the title.
