What a fantastic gesture on all sides! This is an email from St. Pats to Wolfe Tones after their Junior B Final on Sunday!
After the final whistle there was just the single point between the teams and as devastated as Wolfe Tones were after the loss they still formed a guard of honour as the St. Pats team left the pitch.
”On behalf of St Pats Ladies Myself Damien, Martin and Darragh would like to thank and complement the Wolfe Tones ladies who formed a guard of Honour and clapped our team off the pitch on Sunday.
It was a real classy show of sportsmanship especially only moments after narrowly losing out on a county championship.
All we can say girls we were exactly in that same place last year and with the heart you guys have shown this year I can see the Tones back next year to finish the job off!
Many thanks respect and well wishes for the future from your friends at St Pats.”
