On Sunday afternoon, the Claremorris women’s football team are bidding to seal their place in this year’s LGFA All-Ireland Junior club Championship final. They’ve home advantage in Sunday’s semi-final against Erin’s Own, Lavey from Derry, with the game throwing in at 1.30pm.
Michael Commins has a super match preview in this week’s Mayo News (paper and digital variants) in which he speaks with Claremorris captain Laura Kelly. In it, Laura explains to Michael how relegation down to Junior level last year fired up Claremorris to do better this year.
They’ve certainly done that. Victory over St Brigid’s in the county JFC final saw them bounce back up to Intermediate at the first attempt and then wins over CT Gaels of Sligo and another St Brigid’s – this time the Leitrim champions – sealed a first-ever Connacht title for Claremorris. Now they’re just one match away from an All-Ireland final appearance.
The Claremorris club are looking to see big home support at the town pitch on Sunday to cheer on the team as they bid for a place in the All-Ireland decider. If you’re planning on going to the game, the link for purchasing tickets is here.
The very best of luck to Claremorris on Sunday.
