Tesco All Ireland Ladies Football Club Sevens Tournament Launched

More than 1,000 players, representing 90 clubs will descend on the capital this weekend for the Tesco All Ireland Ladies Football Club Sevens tournament.

The tournament which has is an integral part of the All-Ireland weekend will once again be played in Naomh Mearnóg and St Sylvester’s GAA Clubs and will see teams playing across three grades, Senior, Intermediate and Junior with a Championship and Shield competition at each grade.

Last year’s Senior Champions, Seneschalstown of Meath, return to defend their title, while 2009 champions, Emyvale, and 2009 runners up, Donaghmoyne, may have any sevens title hopes scuppered by the county side’s Senior All-Ireland title bid the following day.

In the Intermediate grade, there is a strong Dublin contingent with Kilmacud Crokes, Skerries Harps, Ballinteer St Johns, Parnells and Garda all represented. With defending Intermediate Champions, Banner Ladies of Clare now participating at senior level in this year’s tournament, this grade appears to be anyone’s for the taking.

40 teams will battle it out for the Junior Sevens title, with Dublin’s Cuala, last year’s ere beaten finalists, tipped as slight favourites in the absence of defending champions Caltra Cuans of Galway.

Among the other teams competing at this year’s Tesco All Ireland Ladies Football Club Sevens will be two teams from the UK; Fulham Irish, and John Mitchells and two teams from mainland Europe; Europe and An Eoraip.

The tournament starts at 10.00am at Naomh Mearnog/Sylvesters with the Championship finals expected to commence at 5.00pm across all grades.
