Team to play Armagh tomorrow named

A bit earlier this evening we named our team for tomorrow’s LGFA All-Ireland SFC group stage match against Armagh. The game throws in at the Athletic Grounds at 3.30pm tomorrow and is being shown live on TG4. Here’s the team we’ve named for it:

Mayo (LGFA All-Ireland SFC v Armagh, 25/6/2023): Laura Brennan (Hollymount); Éilis Ronayne (Davitts), Róisín Flynn (Knockmore), Danielle Caldwell (Castlebar Mitchels); Ciara Needham (Louisburgh), Fiona McHale (Carnacon), Kathryn Sullivan (Castlebar Mitchels, captain); Aoife Geraghty (Westport), Sinéad Cafferkey (Kilmovee Shamrocks); Shauna Howley (Knockmore), Rachel Kearns (MacHale Rovers), Maria Cannon (Burrishoole); Lisa Cafferkey (Kilmovee Shamrocks), Deirdre Doherty (Charlestown Sarsfields), Sinéad Walsh (MacHale Rovers).

The team for tomorrow shows four changes from the one that beat Galway to land the Connacht title early in May. Into the team come Ciara Needham, Shauna Howley, Maria Cannon and Sinéad Walsh, while out go Saoirse Lally, Tamara O’Connor, Sarah Mulvihil and Tara Needham.

A notable feature for us on Connacht final day was that the team that started for us was a very different one from the team named in advance. In addition, there were a number of unexpected positional switches, chief among them Danielle Caldwell shifting to centre-forward where she had a huge influence on the game, so there could well be alterations from the team named for this one on the day as well.

The best of luck to the team and management for tomorrow’s game.

  1. Good luck to ladies. Crazy win connacht title, and first match away. But your well capable, time to do it

  2. Best of luck, ladies. Appalled that you have to clash with the Seniors game with Galway. Give it your all and there will be another day when I hope the Co Board will stand up for you. You are all mighty. Up Mayo.

  3. Grow the game by having clashes on the same weekend when there is knock out in the men’s football. Considering the success the ladies have brought us over the years you’d have hoped for a bit of push back from the county board.

  4. Thinking of our women this morning. Hope they do what they do best. Get out there and give them a belly full.
    You’ve got the talent and the heart for it.
    Yes, shame that the powers of gaa have so little interest in women playing football. Sadly I don’t see that changing, anytime soon.
    But I’ll be rooting for you, down in Carlow.

  5. LGFA and GAA are two different organisations, for the time being. No point giving out about them not looking out for each other etc. In current set up.
    If this sort of thing happens post amalgamation then it’s a fair target.
    Best of luck ladies.

  6. A big test today of the progress being made by the team. Aimee Mackin destroyed us the last time she played against us so she needs to be closely marked. It’s a real pity two big matches involving Mayo are on at the same time, the sooner the two organisations merge the better. Best of luck today ladies.

  7. Mayo ladies, show your desire, play with poise & deliberation, as well as that killer-instinct, known to those who expect to win.
