Bennekerry/Tinryland Girls Star on Schools Teams

Bennekerry/Tinryland Minor Player Deirdre o'Sullivan playing at corner forward captained St Leos to their 5th Leinster title in Vicarstown Laois on Friday last.
The club was also represented on the team by club members Aoife Byrne (Half Back), Amanda Kinsella (Corner forward) and Lauren Dwyer and Orlagh Moran who were introduced into the game.
