Suzuki Ladies National Football league Roundup


DUBLIN’S senior ladies footballers were yesterday
relegated to Division Two of the Suzuki National Football League
following a play-off defeat to Tyrone at Westmanstown, 1-9 to 0-8.
Sarah Connolly got the all important goal for Tyrone in the first
half as they salvaged their top flight status for another season
at the expense of reigning Leinster champions Dublin. The Dubs actually
led 0-8 to 1-2 at half-time but they failed to score in the second
period – allowing Tyrone to chalk up a further seven points
to gain the victory. 

Elsewhere in the final group games of the National League, Mayo
and Cork both continued their impressive form with victories and
all of the Division One quarter-final pairings have now been confirmed.
Cork will play Armagh, Mayo face Monaghan, Kerry take on Meath
and Galway tackle Waterford. All games are expected to take place
next weekend.

All-Ireland champions Cork maintained their 100% record with
a 4-14 to 2-11 victory over Donegal at Keenagh yesterday. Four
first half goals fired them into a 4-5 to 1-8 half-time lead and
the result rarely looked in any doubt in the second period. Yvonne
McMonagle had hit an early goal for Donegal to push them into
the lead, but goals by Geraldine O’Flynn (two), Caoimhe Creedon
and Aisling O’Connor pushed the Rebels into a commanding

Mayo also continued their winning ways with a 2-13 to 2-7 win
over Armagh in Drumard with their goals coming from Annette Gallagher
and Cora Staunton.

On Friday night, Meath booked their place in the Division One
quarter-finals with a 2-12 to 0-4 win over Donegal in Slane.

In Division Two yesterday, Tipperary and Cavan played out a draw,
2-9 to 3-6, while in Division Three Clare beat Fermanagh 3-9 to
1-9 and Wicklow accounted for Derry 5-9 to 4-9.
