The women’s football team to play Westmeath in the LGFA’s NFL Division 1A at St Loman’s GAA club in Mullingar on Sunday (throw-in 2pm) was named a bit earlier this evening. The team will be captained by Cill Chomain’s Tamara O’Connor and here it is:

This is a much-changed team from the side that started against Donegal last weekend, with seven changes in all from last time out. Into the team come Amy Halligan, Fiona Doherty, Maria Reilly, Ciara Whyte, Tara Needham, Grace Kelly and Amy Dowling while out go Ella Brennan, Orla Conlon, Marie Corbett, Sinead Cafferkey, Fiona McHale, Deirdre Doherty and Lisa Cafferkey.
