All-Ireland Club Ladies Senior Football Championship Semi-Final
Donaghmoyne v Mourneabbey, Sunday, 1.00, Donaghmoyne
Donaghmoyne ladies put their All-Ireland Club SFC title on the line in Sunday’s semi-final at home to last year’s runners-up Mourneabbey from Cork.
Donaghmoyne won this title for a fourth time 12 months ago, getting the better of Mourneabbey in a well-contested final, which was a second consecutive decider defeat for the Munster champions, who had lost to another Ulster club – Donegal’s Termon – in 2014.
After winning a 14th consecutive Monaghan championship in typically dominant fashion, Donaghmoyne eased past Armagh’s Clann Éireann to qualify for another Ulster final, where a win over Tyrone champions St. Macartan’s saw them clinch a tenth provincial title. Mourneabbey edged St. Val’s to win another competitive Cork championship and they retained the Munster crown at the expense of The Banner from Clare.
Mourneabbey can call on Cork stars like Ciara and Doireann O’Sullivan and fellow All-Ireland-winning panellists Meabh, Bríd and Róisín O’Sullivan and Eimear Meaney, but a hugely experienced Donaghmoyne team features the likes of Cathriona McConnell, the Courtneys, Amanda Casey, Louise Kerley, Eileen McElroy and Linda Martin.
All-Ireland Club Ladies Junior Football Championship Semi-Final
St. Maurs v Latton, Sunday, 1.00, Arus Naomh Maur
Latton’s ladies are also in All-Ireland semi-final action away to Dublin side St Maurs in the JFC on Sunday.
Latton cruised through their delayed quarter-final against Granemore from Armagh, before battling past Donegal side St. Naul’s and winning the Ulster final against Kingscourt (Cavan). After winning the Dublin championship, St Maurs went on to Leinster glory with a convincing provincial final victory over Kildare club Suncroft, before seeing off Glasgow Gaels at the All-Ireland quarter-final stage.
Latton will be looking for big performances from Shauna Coyle, Lavina Connolly, Joanne Culleton, Amelia Elliott and Katie Duffy, while Olivia Leonard, Éadaoin McGuinness, Naomi Clare and Megan Foley are key for St Maurs.
