AUSTRALIAN VISITORS: On Friday last, January 4, Monaleen Ladies Football hosted the first Australian Wanderers Girls AFL team to tour Ireland. A team of our U16 & U18 girls played the Wanderers team in UL North Campus. A very sporting game was played with a mix of Gaelic and Aussie Rules which all enjoyed. The travelling players were hosted by our player families as part of their trip. Following the match, both teams, their coaches and supporters returned to the clubhouse for a lovely meal and some entertainment. Monaleen Ladies Football would like to sincerely thank everyone who helped make the Wanderers visit such a success and we look forward to a return visit in the future.
