The Women's Pitch
Latest Ladies Football News
The first two quarter-finals of the Senior Ladies Football Championship will be played as a double header to be broadcast live on TG4 from Cusack Park in Mullingar.
The first game, with a throw-in of 5.15pm, will feature a repeat of this year’s Ulster final with Tyrone taking on Armagh while the second quarter-final between Mayo and Monaghan gets under way at 7.15pm.
There were a number of shock results on the final weekend of the group stage with hotly favoured Galway eliminated from the competition and Meath also exited the Championship earlier than expected as Kildare advanced from Group 4.
Galway will rue the decision to empty their bench with ten minutes to go as the Farney women capitalised with a late flourish to steal the win and clinch the second qualifying spot from Group 2. Monaghan now have the unenviable task of facing Mayo in the knock-out stages. Niamh Kindlon, Monaghan’s star forward, knows that her side face a huge task this weekend.
“Mayo will be a really big challenge for us but we are looking forward to it. We know if we click we are capable of beating anyone. No one gives us a prayer up against Mayo but the team is very positive and confident going into the match.”
The final two quarter-finals will take place on Saturday 18th August with Championship surprise package Dublin taking on reigning champions Cork and Leinster champions Laois facing neighbours Kildare. Both of these games will be broadcast live on TG4.
