Oblate Dynamos upset Tralee in Women’s National Cup

Dynamos brought with them a host of experienced players, led by an outstanding performance from their captain, and MVP, Georgina McKenna. Despite a terrific first half performance from Sinead Mackessy, McKenna’s leadership, supported by Theresa Harrison and Jolie Niland, was too much for the Imperials in the second half. Emma Sherwood tried to keep the Tralee side’s hopes alive late in the game but it was not enough and Dynamos held off to win the Senior Women’s National Cup.
