The Mayo women’s team to play Dublin in Saturday’s LGFA NFL Division 1 semi-final at the Gaelic Grounds, Limerick, was named a short while ago. That game throws in at 5.15pm on Saturday and here’s the team we’ve named to start in it:
Mayo (LGFA NFL Division 1 semi-final v Dublin, 12/6/2021): Laura Brennan (Hollymount); Saoirse Lally (Westport), Clodagh McManamon (Burrishoole, captain), Orla Conlon (Castlebar Mitchels); Eilis Ronayne (Davitts), Tamara O’Connor (Cill Chomain), Kathryn Sullivan (Castlebar Mitchels); Fiona Doherty (Moy Davitts), Sinead Cafferkey (Kilmovee Shamrocks); Niamh Kelly (Moy Davitts), Fiona McHale (Carnacon), Grace Kelly (Moy Davitts); Maria Reilly (Kiltane), Shauna Howley (Knockmore), Rachel Kearns (MacHale Rovers).
So it’s five changes from the side that started the last day against Westmeath. In come Paula Brennan in goals, as well as Saoirse Lally, Orla Conlon, Sinead Cafferkey and Fiona McHale. Out go Aisling Tarpey, Amy Halligan, Ciara Whyte, Tara Needham and Amy Dowling.
Saturday evening’s game is being streamed live by TG4 on its YouTube channel and I hope to embed the feed here on the blog as well. The best of luck to Michael Moyles and his team for this important game.
