LGFA county finals on this Saturday

A feast of women’s football is scheduled for the Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence this coming Saturday. The Junior, Intermediate and Senior finals are all fixed for the East Mayo venue that day.

The action gets underway at 12pm when Claremorris takes on St Brigid’s in the Junior A final. That’s followed by the Intermediate decider between MacHale Rovers and Moy Davitts at 2pm. Then, at 4pm, it’s the big one, with Knockmore taking on Westport in the Senior final.

The Senior decider is an intriguing one, pitting Knockmore, champions in 2021 and who are appearing in their third county final in a row, against first-time finalists Westport.

Knockmore’s breakthrough success two years ago, when they knocked Carnacon off their perch of 22 years, came in the wake of their men’s team winning the Moclair Cup. Now Westport’s women – who crushed Carnacon in last weekend’s semi-final – are seeking to emulate their men by winning a first Senior county title.

Will Knockmore’s greater experience stand to them on Saturday? Or will Westport’s drive for a first taste of glory at this level reach its successful conclusion? It’s a hard one to call so I’m going to hand the job over to you: which of them do you think will be celebrating with the silverware at Bekan on Saturday evening?

Who'll win the women's Senior county final?

  • Knockmore (59%, 90 Votes)
  • Westport (41%, 63 Votes)

Total Voters: 153

  1. Think Knockmores experience might just swing it .
    Great to see lots of underage talent coming through at club level

  2. Claremorris with the much larger pick and having just come down from intermediate grade surely strong favourites for Junior, especially with St. Brigids having picked up a bad ankle injury in last round.

    Intermediate and senior both add calls, would lean towards BMD to do the intermediate double this year.

    In senior Knockmore have done phenomenally well the past 3 years under Cormac Reape. It’s a long time to be on the go, so coming up v a hungry Westport team with huge numbers to select from and so many players with past inter county experience across the different age groups will likely have it all to do. Westport favourites I’d imagine but like league there may not be much in this one and could go anyway.

    It’s surprising that given Carnacons fall from the top that it was Knockmore and Burrishoole that made the big breakthroughs to claim the past two titles, given so many large towns there are and large amalgamations in the competitions eg. Kilmoremoy (Ballina, Ardnaree, Bonniconlon) or MacHale Rovers (Crossmolina, Lahardane and Ardagh I think).
