Armagh Ladies County Finals

Armagh Ladies County Finals

There will be a feast of football in Armagh next weekend when the Junior and Intermediate championship finals take place.

The Junior Final will be contested by Killeavy and Keady. Over the past few years Killeavy have struggled to re-establish themselves as one of the leading teams in the county but on Sunday they will hope to rectify this. They have no shortage of talent in their ranks with the likes of Sharon Reel, Aileen Matthews and county minor player Ceire McConville playing leading roles.

Keady go into the encounter after just three full years playing competitive football and they will be hoping to continue their progress by capturing their first county title. Their team is built on the success of the Armagh minor team over the last 3 years and they will look to players such as Ciara Donnelly, Sarah Molloy and captain Roisin Molloy to provide inspiration when needed.

The Intermediate final is between Armagh Harps and St Pats, Cullyhanna. Cullyhanna have made rapid progress since forming a senior team in 2007. Last year they captured the Armagh Junior Championship and will want to continue their winning streak by adding an Intermediate title to their Roll of Honour.

In contrast to their opponents, Armagh Harps are one of the oldest clubs in the county. Although Armagh Harps underage sides are consistently among the top performers in the county, success for the Senior team in recent years has been in short supply. Harps won back to back county titles on 1997/98 so on Sunday they aim to bridge an 11 year gap. They have no shortage of experience with many of the panel holding underage and minot county honours. Paula Powell has been a key performer in the Armagh county team over the past number of years and will lead by example on Sunday.

The matches will take place in the Athletic Grounds in Armagh on Sunday.
