In Pictures: Laois ladies celebrate following dramatic league final victory over Kildare

The Laois ladies celebrated Division 3 football league success following a dramatic encounter with Kildare in Baltinglass yesterday.

Mo Nerney was the hero once again as her last gasp point proved crucial.

The Timahoe footballer kicked a point with 42 seconds to go that proved to be the difference following yet another incredible game of football.

They are now promoted to Division 2 for 2022 and will go into the Intermediate championship with a pep in their step following this success.

There were brilliant performances for Donie Brennan’s side all over the pitch.

Keeper Eimear Barry was spot on with her kick-outs with Aimee Kelly and Clodagh Dunne rock solid in front of her – while Amy Potts was named player of the match after a commanding display.

Rachel Williams, Ellen Healy and Laura Nerney were dynamic on the half back line while Jane Moore and Fiona Dooley drove forward at every opportunity.

Erone Fitzpatrick and Eva Galvin featured on the scoreboard while Anna Healy worked tirelessly throughout.

Alannah Havill was always an option in the full forward line beside the aforementioned Mo and Sarah Anne Fitzgerald who scored 1-1.

Orla Hennessy, Joyce Dunne, Andrea Moran, Leah Tarpey and Aoife Kirrane all made big impacts from the bench too.

Laois will now turn their attention to the All-Ireland Intermediate championship where games against Kildare and Roscommon lie ahead.

Our photographer Paul Dargan was there at full time to capture the best of the celebrations.
