19 July 2006 – Monaghan Utd 0, Trim Celtic Ladies 1.
Dublin Women’s League – Inter Div 4 Nth

If Celtic’s Ladies win their League this year, this is the game that manager Robert Bradley will look back on as the most important result in the campaign. This was essentially a rearguard action from start to finish against a much stronger Monaghan team to the one that fielded two days earlier. Celestine Keaveney was outstanding in goal and the entire defence withstood constant pressure to keep the lively Monaghan forwards at bay for the entire 90 minutes. Denise Jackson missed a second half penalty and just when it looked like the game was slipping away, Celtic’s Ladies surged forward chasing a long ball which fell to the feet of Michelle Doyle who prodded it home into an empty net for the only score of the game. Janet McElroy’s performance also deserves mention. Louise Hayes was dismissed 4 minutes from the end for a second yellow card.

17 July 2006 – Trim Celtic Ladies 3, Monaghan Utd 0.
Dublin Women’s League – Inter Div 4 Nth

This was an outstanding display by Celtic’s Ladies as they saw off the challenge of National League opposition in a game played in perfect conditions in Tully Park. Manager Robert Bradley acknowledged a great team performance afterwards and picked out Denise Jackson, Pelma McCullough and Louise Hayes as his top performers on the night in addition to the scorers. It took a bizarre OG for Celtic to take a 1-0 lead into the break and it was not until 20 minutes before the break when Louise Hayes converted a corner with a crisp header that the team could relax. Alison Feeney and Michelle Doyle played well in midfield throughout and Denise Jackson scored the third near the end to round off a perfect night.

Dublin Women’s League – Inter Div 4 Nth

It took a stong half time pep talk from Manager Robert Bradley to spur the Ladies into action against a lively Ratoath side in this home League game at Tully Park. The game was scoreless at the break after a very disappointing first period but Avril McGowan livened matters up immediately after the break when she found the net with a fine strike on the run. Avril went on to bag a haul of four goals (one a penalty) and Denise Jackson got the other goal after a fine sols run right fdown the middle oif the field. Keeper Celestine Kearney enjoyed another ine game and others to impress were Michelle Nugent, Louise Hayes and Janet McvElroy

FAI Senior Cup

Despite an impressive start Celtic’s Ladies were unable to match the Premier Divison side from Lucan over ninety minutes. The game was tied at 1-1 at the break but the overall superiority of the Dublin side paid off in the second period as the Trim girls tired. Celtic fielded with a weakened side and manager Robert Bradley was upbeat despite the defeat. Best for Celtic were Denise Jackson, Celine McLarney and Alison Feeney. Avril McGowan was on target.

On Wednesday this week the Club Ladies enjoyed better fortunes closer to home when they defeated Ratoath Harps in Ratoath by a score of 4-0, with all of the goals coming in the first period as they played with a strong wind at their backs. After a slow start, Avril McGowan found the net three times and Virginia Smith also scored in a facile win which sees the Trim girls through to the Shield quarter final where they are scheduled to play Drogheda Utd. Apart from the scorers, Debbie Reyolds, Tracey Kerrigan and Denise Jackson all impressed. Keeper Celestine also impressed in handling some second half goalmouth pressure.

Celtic’s Ladies suffered an early season setback last Monday night when they lost 2-1 against National League side Drogheda Utd. in United Park, despite taking a first half lead thanks to a long range strike by Celine McLarney.
