Team news: Sligo and Tyrone prepare for TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate Semi-Final

TG4 All Ireland Intermediate Semi Final– ET if Necessary

SATURDAY – Sligo v Tyrone, 4.00pm, Fr. Tierney Park, Ballyshannon, Co Donegal

TWO counties who are no strangers to each other lock horns in the first of the 2018 TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate Semi-Finals.

Tyrone came out on top at the corresponding stage of the competition last year, winning out by 1-16 to 0-11.

But Sligo were competitive in that opening half, before conceding a goal to Niamh O’Neill on the stroke of half-time.

Tyrone eased to victory but Sligo will be confident of closing the gap as they prepare to face the Red Hands again, in a fixture that will be available to view LIVE on the LGFA’s Facebook Page:

Tyrone were defeated by Tipperary in last year’s All-Ireland final but are determined to go one better this time.

They’ve shown ominous form throughout the 2018 championship, comfortably winning the Ulster title before topping a qualifier group that also included Wicklow and Offaly.

At the quarter-final stage, Tyrone had the test they needed against a fine Wexford side, before booking their slot in the last four.

Sligo relinquished their Connacht title against Roscommon but recovered to top Group 1 of the qualifiers, securing victories over Laois and Longford in the process.

Those victories pitted the Yeats County against Wicklow in the quarter-finals, and they won out on a 4-13 to 2-13 scoreline, in what was a really entertaining game at the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick.

Katie Walsh was brilliant for Sligo with a 2-5 haul, with the returning Stephanie O’Reilly at centre forward pulling the strings.
