The Ardee Vocational School team defeated Bush VS on the last day of the Co. Louth Vocational Schools Volleyball League in 1969-70. having already drawn each other, and with Bush VS having lost in a shock defeat to an ever-improving Dundalk, Ardee had to win the match in order to take the G.E.C. Cup, and they did in four sets, dropping only the third, with Bush no match for the Ardee girls despite being trained by an American. Ardee thus won 7 and drew one of their 8 matches.

Ardee VS Team vs Bush VS (01 May 1970): Mary Breen, Mary Bird, Ann Breen, Marie McCormick, Mary Kelly, Teresa Corbally and Noleen Gosling.
