HUNDREDS of Termon supporters spilled onto the pitch at Tuam Stadium after their heroic ladies team won the All-Ireland title against Mourneabbey.

Spurred on by inspirational captain Geraldine McLaughlin – who scored a stunning 3-8 for the Burn Road girls in their 3-12 to 1-13 win – Termon became the first side from Donegal to take home an All-Ireland. Francie Friel’s team came from four behind at half-time to win a cracking final.

Geraldine McLaughlin is back to her devastating best and is gunning for Ulster SFC glory once more.
