  1. Hope our ladies play well and win today. There’s about 4 changes to the team that started against Dublin so obviously Moyles is still giving players a chance to claim a place on the first fifteen. An experimental team again today, it’ll be interesting to see how it goes, hope they all justify his faith in them.

  2. 1-9 to 0-5 in front after a very solid first half. Rachel Kearns got the goal – she won a long ball in, burst clear and shot low to the corner of the net. Mayo well on top at this stage.
