Business end of the Suzuki League kicks into action

Ladies National Football League Quarter-finals Weekend


This weekend sees the business end of the Suzuki Ladies
National Football League kick into action with quarter-finals
taking place in all three divisions. The tie of the round
in Division 1 is the meeting of last years All Ireland finalists
Cork and Armagh at Park Ratheniska on Sunday. Despite being
run close in that final in October last year, Cork are expected
to extend their unbeaten run and advance to the semi-finals.
“We have had a good start to the season, but this is the
stage of the competition where everyone has to raise their
game. We will be without our camogie contingent for the
game against Armagh, but hopefully we can do enough to get
through,” said Cork captain Juliet Murphy.

Armagh have failed to rediscover the form which propelled
them from Junior champions to senior finalists and will
need something special to beat the Rebellettes.

Another mouth watering quarter-final sees last years beaten
league finalists, Meath taking on a Mayo side on the crest
of a wave. Mayo had a slow start to this year’s league campaign
but finished with three impressive wins to top Division
1A. The Royal County will put in a strong performance but
Mayo are expected to advance.

Kerry have surprised many teams this year with their high
octane performances but even without the element of surprise
they should have far too much firepower for Monaghan in
their quarter final clash.

The last of the quarter-finals sees the Leinster and Connacht
champions come face to face as Laois take on Galway.

Dublin booked their place in the Division 2 semi-finals
with an emphatic win over Down last weekend. All Ireland
Junior Champions Sligo will be hoping to join them this
weekend at the expense of Longford while Leitrim will have
it all to do against in form Tipperary.

The final quarter-final in Division 2 sees Clare take on
Wexford with the Model County favoured to advance.
