The All Ireland championships are down to the last four in Senior, Intermediate and Junior in the Ladies club football. I visited Mayo and Connacht champions Kilmoremoy to talk to some of those behind the success of the club this year and preview their semi-final showdown with Kinsale, the Cork & Munster standard-bearers.
It promises to be an intriguing battle in Ballina (Sunday, Nov 20th @ 1pm), with two young and up-and-coming sides facing off for a place in the All Ireland final.
Kinsale clinched the Cork trophy with a high scoring victory over Dromtarriffe (4-17 to 1-14) after plundering five goals in their semi-final win over Naomh Abhan.
In Munster, Cork star Orla Finn was to the fore as they first overcame Dungarvan and then Limerick’s Drom Broadford in Mallow by four points setting up their last four clash with Kilmoremoy.
The Mayo women meanwhile out-scored St James of Galway 6-14 1-11 in the Connacht decider. That came on top of their 5-16 to 3-7 victory over Michael Glaveys of Roscommon in the penultimate round.
With both sides in cracking form it promises to be a footballing feast on Sunday November 20th!
