Preview of the TG4 Senior Ladies Football Connacht Championship

Connacht Ladies Football Championship Finals.

Ladies Senior Connacht football final

Sawdoctors once sang about ”Will Galway beat Mayo ,only
if they have Willie Joe” But Mayo ladies have Cora. Cora
Staunton equals any Willie Joe in the ability to pull any
game out of the fire none more evident than when they played

started their TG4 Championship campaign on the back foot
when they were defeated by Galway by just one point, followed
by Roscommon pushing them to the limit and only a Diane
O’Hora goal and late points by Cora Staunton saved the day.
Galway on the other hand had the balance of power when they
came to play Roscommon despite many debates and thus Galway
played to win. A vastly improved Roscommon team may look
back on this years championship games against Mayo and Galway
and ruetheir chances.

years TG4 Championship has been tightly contested with the
gap in all teams closed to a minimum and this has resulted
in games of a high standard and quality. No doubt the 8th
of August in Pearse Stadium Galway at 4.00 oclock will see
the same standard. Both teams will be endeavouring to write
a new chapter in Connacht Ladies football history. If Mayo
win they will be the first team to hold the CBE cup for
three times in a row where on the other hand if Galway win
it will be their first Connacht Senior Championship title.

events may give Mayo the edge over Galway on the day. On
a happy note Fiona Wynne Galway’s corner back will be on
her honeymoon, we wish Fiona and her new husband very best
wishes in the future. On a sad note the Connacht Ladies
Football association would like to extend sincere sympathy
to Galway player Sara Cosgrove and her family on the sad
loss of her Brother Darren. May he rest in peace.

and Sligo TG4 Ladies Connacht Final.

Curtain raiser Leitrim and Sligo play a repeat of last year’s
TG4 Connacht Junior Final at 2.00 o’clock in Pearse Stadium,
Galway. A well fancied Sligo team under the management of
Kathleen Keane hope to repeat the success of 2003. Sligo
look to be the young form team who demolished a good Mayo
side in the semi-final. Leitrim on the other hand had to
fight hard in the second half to hold off a gallant young
Galway side. That clash with Galway had to be of huge benefit
to Leitrim and it exposed some weak links which I’m sure
were worked on in the past few weeks. This final should
be a fast high scoring game aided by the large playing pitch.

would be the favourites in this TG4 Connacht Final but the
ladies of Leitrim with their experience and skillful players
will not allow it go without a fight. A large crowd is expected
for this double header so be early and give support to all
