It proved a very profitable trip to Tipp today for the Mayo LGFA U14 team as they comfortably beat Cork in the LGFA All-Ireland Platinum final at McDonagh Park in Nenagh. The Mayo girls clinched the title on a scoreline of 2-9 to 0-7.
While this All-Ireland success was very much a team endeavour, the Stagg household had a huge impact on today’s win. Sinéad Stagg – herself an All-Ireland winner with Mayo at Senior level – manages the team and her daughter Emma bagged 2-4 this afternoon, in a performance that had a very significant bearing on the game’s outcome.
The goals came in what was a dominant opening half from Mayo and Cork were never able to get back into the contest after that. Our girls won at the finish by eight points.

Congrats to the Mayo team and management on a super All-Ireland success.
