Ladies into the semis

Mayo v Westmeath

A bit like the lads, the ladies had to come through quite a battle before they got past Westmeath in this year’s championship. In this afternoon’s LGFA All-Ireland quarter-final at Pearse Park in Longford the Mayo girls eventually won through on a scoreline of 2-10 to 1-11.

No more than Waterloo, this afternoon’s encounter with the Lake County was a close run thing. Our girls led pretty much all the way but they were never able to shake off the tough challenge presented by Westmeath. A late Westmeath goal left the tie in the balance but an even later point from Niamh Kelly steered the Green and Red girls home.

The win sends the ladies forward, for the first time in seven years, to the All-Ireland semi-finals. There they’re scheduled to meet Dublin, who today ended Donegal’s hopes of championship glory in the day’s other quarter-final tie.

  1. The Mayo women are extraordinarary. They are not just good footballers …….they exhibit what is best in character and stamina. They achieve way beyond the normal and they do it without fuss and with determination. I love Mayo women. I know ……..I married one and I know the strength of character they show while pandering to the egos of men. While we have these women there is hope for the men. Mna Mhuigheo Abu.
