Holy Trinity Cookstown Vs Davitt College, Castlebar – 2013 GAA All Ireland Vocational Schools Semi Final

Holy Trinity Cookstown have made their second All Ireland Vocational Schools final in two years following their comprehensive 2-12 to 1-06 win over Mayo school Davitt College, Castlebar in Brewster Park, Enniskillen on Saturday.

After beating St Ciaran’s College, Ballygawley in the Tyrone final two weeks ago, Cookstown (wearing Eglish GFC jerseys for the game) faced a tougher challenge and were frustrated in the opening 15 minutes when they struggled to find any sort of flow or scores to their game. It wasn’t until Daryl McGee was pulled down in the Castlebar square and James McGahan’s goal conversion that the Tyrone men found their form. From this point on, Adrian O’Donnell and Peter Canavan’s men dominated and won comfortably by 9 points. Although the game threatened to boil over on a number of occasions towards the end, Holy Trinity kept their composure and cool and walked off the field with 15 men and their heads held high.

Well done to them and good luck in the All-Ireland final in two weeks boys!
