Ulster champions Armagh’s unbeaten league run came to an end yesterday
as they were beaten by Laois 2-5 to 1-4. The Orchard girls just
never got going and trailed at the break 0-2 to 1-2. Maria O Donnell
scored a second half goal but it was much too little too late.
All in all it was a pretty bad performance lacking in the usual

Edel Gallagher was the toast of Antrim yesterday. The St. Galls
forward ran riot, scoring 3-3 as the Saffrons beat Derry 3-10
to 1-3. The result will give Antrim loads of confidence ahead
of the championship meeting of the same two teams later in the

And finally the Tyrone v Kerry game was postponed yesterday owing
to the death of Nora Connolly, Augher. Nora was the mother of
former Tyrone manager Aidan Connolly and the mother in law of
the Tyrone Honourary President Mary Connolly. The thoughts and
prayers of all involved in ladies football in the province are
with Aidan and Mary at this time.
