    Galway 3-07 Mayo 0-09

  • Statement from Galway Ladies Senior management regarding Sunday's Connacht Final: 

    "The Galway Senior Ladies Football management expresses its dismay and disappointment and that the appointment by Connacht LGFA of former Mayo minor ladies football manager Gerry Carmody as referee for their Connacht senior final with Mayo at MacHale Park, Castlebar this Sunday stands as is.

    The decision by Connacht LGFA to dismiss Galway’s objection, we believe, calls not only the integrity of this year's Connacht final into question but also that of an administration which has shown a blatant disregard for Galway ladies football with this appointment and, indeed, the spirit of the game of ladies’ football.

    We would consequently call on LGFA and Croke Park to investigate this matter thoroughly, determining as to how such an appointment could be made, and take swift and appropriate action.

    This is the fifth consecutive year Galway must travel to MacHale Park for the provincial decider and the appointment of Mr. Carmody, who has mentored a number of the current Mayo senior players as Mayo minor boss between 2012 - 2013, is a gross error of judgement by Connacht LGFA.

    We recognise Mr. Carmody, who changed his inter-county designation from Mayo to Roscommon, is not to blame for this current predicament but, by the same token, it would be remiss of Galway senior ladies management, on behalf of our set-up, not to object to the appointment of someone who has represented Mayo as both a ladies’ football inter-county manager and as one of their designated referees over a number of years.

    Galway Ladies Board has informed us this morning that the appointment stands on two grounds – both of which we would dispute. The first is that Mr. Carmody changed his designation two years ago – which is irrelevant given his close association to Mayo. However, it is also untrue as the LGFA national website featured Mr. Carmody in a profile as ‘Mayo Referee’ in September 2016, which is less than two years ago.

    Secondly, Connacht LGFA assert that Mr. Carmody is the most qualified referee in Connacht. This may be the case but, in light of his previous history with Mayo, this doesn’t align with the spirit of the game.

    Indeed, we, as a management, would question why a referee with no affiliation to either of the competing counties could not have been selected for Sunday's game by Connacht LGFA.

    This is a regrettable situation. We had endeavoured to deal with this in a quieter manner by bringing our appeal to Connacht Council this week but the failure of this administration to satisfactorily address our concerns has forced us to take this issue into the public arena.

    We are disappointed that we have to do so and that we have to deal with this disruption in the week leading into the Connacht final. However, we would hope that by bringing this matter to light in the public domain that this decision would be reversed."

  • TG4 Connacht Ladies Senior Football champions Galway have made two changes in personnel for Sunday’s eagerly-awaited provincial final clash with old rivals Mayo .

    Galway’s last competitive outing was the Lidl NFL Division 1 Final defeat to Cork on May 5 and manager Tim Rabbitt has shuffled his pack for the visit to Elvery’s MacHale Park.

    Fit-again Áine McDonagh, who’s had a difficult run with injuries, returns to the starting line-up, along with Leanne Coen.

    From the team that started against Cork, Orla Murphy and Sarah Conneally drop to the bench, as Galway aim for a third successive TG4 Connacht senior crown, and their seventh in eight seasons.

    Galway (v Mayo): L Murphy; S Molloy, S Lynch, F Cooney; B Hannon, S Burke, C Cooney; L Ward, Á McDonagh; O Divilly, T Leonard (capt.), M Glynn; L Coen, R Leonard, M Seoighe.

  • Mayo   4-7  2-9   Donegal

  • Galway 2-10
    Mayo 2-9


    Róisín Leonard came up with the winning free for Galway as they booked their place in the TG4 All-Ireland Championship senior final for the first time since 2005 with victory over Mayo at Croke Park.


    This was the Connacht rivals’ fourth meeting of the year and Galway’s third success but it went down to the wire in a thriller.


    Galway held a 2-5 to 1-6 lead at half-time, with Mairéad Seoighe scoring both of their goals either side of Rachel Kearns’ strike for Mayo.


    Niamh Kelly scored Mayo’s second goal shortly after the resumption and they took the lead going into the closing stages.


    Leanne Coen found an equaliser for Galway and then Leonard scored an outstanding free from the deck in the closing stages for what turned out to be the winner.

  • Bohola sisters Grace & Niamh Kelly will return home from Perth next week.

    Grace sustained a serious knee injury a month ago for the West Coast Eagles but says the surgery went well and she will now be able to fly home to Ireland.

    The Moy Davitts ace, 25, joined her younger sister Niamh, 24, at women’s AFL side West Coast Eagles last year.

    The sisters will be hoping to line out for Mayo in the Championship this season if there is a campaign with the Coronavirus bringing action to a halt.

    Speaking to Midwest Sport today, Grace says it's been a hectic few weeks but is really looking forward to returning home to Mayo next week.

    The full interview with Michael D McAndrew can be heard on this Sunday's Sport Show.

  • Kiltimagh sisters Dayna and Hazel Finn have both been honored with the captaincy of the Ireland U20 and U16 basketball teams respectively.

    The Connaught Telegraph reports Dayna has been selected as vice-captain for the U20 ladies team, who head to Kosovo on the August bank holiday weekend for the European Championships.

    Dayna also plays football for the Mayo Ladies since receiving the call up to Peter Leahy's team last year.

    Her younger sister Hazel has been selected as captain for the Irish U16’s and won an All-star for her recent performance in Dussemann tournament.

  • The Ladies Gaelic Football Association has confirmed the groupings for the revamped 2020 TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship.

    The 2020 All-Ireland series will consist of two groups, with six teams in each.

    The top two teams from each group will progress straight through to the All-Ireland semi-finals, following a minimum of five games.

    Holders Dublin are drawn in Group 2 alongside the 2020 Munster Champions, next year's beaten Ulster and Connacht Finalists, Ulster's fifth team, and a Munster semi-final loser.

  • THE Ladies Gaelic Football Association is pleased to confirm that Lidl National League Division 1 champions Dublin will play two glamour 2019 regulation fixtures at Croke Park.

    These games will serve as curtain-raisers and ‘double-headers’ alongside Dublin’s male counterparts at the Drumcondra venue.

    Dublin, who are also the reigning TG4 All-Ireland Senior champions, will open the defence of their Lidl NFL Division 1 crown with a fixture at Croke Park against Donegal on Saturday February 2, at 5pm.

    This game will be followed by the meeting of Dublin and Galway in Division 1 of the Allianz Football League at 7pm.

    On Saturday, February 23, Dublin will take on old rivals Mayo in the Lidl NFL at Croke Park, again with a 5pm throw-in time.

    This game will be a repeat of the 2018 Lidl NFL Division 1 final at Parnell Park, which Dublin won to secure a first ever top-flight title.

    Following this latest meeting on February 23, the Dublin and Mayo men’s teams will play in the Allianz NFL at 7pm.  

    Last February, Dublin and Mayo were also involved in a ‘double-header’ at Elvery’s MacHale Park in Castlebar, with both games screened LIVE by eir sport.

    The LGFA is also working on securing a number of other ‘double-headers’ - and should be in a position to confirm full details at some point next week.

  • A repeat of the 2016 decider sees holders Cork, chasing six-in-a-row, up against Mayo at the penultimate stage of the competition.

    This is also a repeat of last year’s TG4 All-Ireland semi-final between the counties and the fixture will provide a pretty accurate gauge of both teams’ progress in 2018.

    Mayo have been boosted by the return to the squad of experienced defender Martha Carter but manager Peter Leahy indicated this week that she won’t feature in the concluding stages of the League.

    Cora Staunton is back in Ireland following a successful stint with GWS Giants in the Women’s AFL, and Leahy will hope that she features during the summer, while veteran goalkeeper Yvonne Byrne is another player yet to declare her intentions for 2018.

    Despite Staunton’s absence, Mayo have progressed to a League semi-final and with a strong spread of scorers throughout the team.

    Sarah Rowe has emerged as a real leader in attack and she’s flanked in an impressive full-forward line by the Kelly sisters, Niamh and Grace.

    Cork have real firepower of their own to call upon as Eimear Scally and Orla Finn form two-thirds of a potentially lethal inside line.

    The O’Sullivan sisters, Doireann and Ciara, line out in the half-forward line, with Aisling Hutchings and Brid O’Sullivan anchoring midfield.

    Cork won the group fixture between the counties but Leahy will hope that his players learned the lessons from that outing as they prepare to face Ephie Fitzgerald’s champions.

    Cork: M O’Brien; M Ambrose, E Meaney, E Spillane; M O’Callaghan, M Duggan, S Kelly; A Hutchings, B O’Sullivan; C O’Sullivan, D O’Sullivan, O Farmer; L Coppinger, E Scally, O Finn.

    Mayo: S Murphy; O Conlon, S Tierney, S Ludden; D Caldwell, E Lowther, D Hughes; C McManamon, A Gilroy; F McHale, F Doherty, S Cafferky; N Kelly, S Rowe, G Kelly.

  • THERE are 22 survivors from the teams that lined out in the 2017 TG4 All-Ireland ladies senior football final in Dublin and Mayo’s starting line-ups for Sunday’s eagerly-anticipated Lidl NFL Division 1 final at Parnell Park (4.0).

    Dublin boss Mick Bohan and his Mayo counterpart Peter Leahy have both revealed teams laced with big-match experience.

    Bohan has gone with 12 of the team that started at Croke Park last September while Leahy has opted for ten.

    From the TG4 All-Ireland winning side, Bohan is going with all bar defenders Sinead Finnegan and Rachel Ruddy, along with attacker Carla Rowe.

    Ruddy is unavailable to Bohan this year while Finnegan and Rowe are working their way back from recent injuries.

    Leahy, meanwhile, will not be calling upon Cora Staunton for the League showpiece, while fellow long-serving stars Martha Carter, who recently rejoined the Mayo squad, and goalkeeper Yvonne Byrne won’t be involved either.

    The immediate futures of Staunton and Byrne should become clearer following Sunday’s final, while Orla Conlon and Ciara Whyte also started for Mayo in last year’s final.

    When comparing last September’s line-ups, into the Dublin team come 2010 All-Ireland winner Siobhán McGrath, Deirdre Murphy and Oonagh Whyte, who scored two goals against Mayo when the sides met in the group stages of the 2018 League campaign in Castlebar.

    For Mayo, meanwhile, there are starts for Emma Lowther, Danielle Caldwell, Clodagh McManamon, Shauna Howley and Sinéad Cafferky.

    Rachel Kearns, who lined out in the half-back line in last year’s final, is now between the sticks for Mayo.

    All eight of the weekend’s Lidl NFL finalists have revealed their teams.


    Lidl NFL Division 1 final:

     

    Dublin – C Trant; M Byrne, D Murphy, L Caffrey; S McGrath, S Goldrick, N Collins; L Magee, O Carey; N Owens, N McEvoy, L Davey; O Whyte, N Healy, S Aherne (capt.).

     

    Mayo – Rachel Kearns: Emma Lowther, Sarah Tierney (capt.), Doireann Hughes; Marie Corbett, Danielle Caldwell, Fiona Doherty; Aileen Gilroy, Clodagh McManamon; Fiona McHale, Shauna Howley, Sinead Cafferky; Niamh Kelly, Sarah Rowe, Grace Kelly.

  • Mayo Ladies Footballers have been handed a huge boost after being awarded their league points against Kerry, after the Kingdom fielded three ineligible players in their Lidl National League Division 1 clash last month.

    The three are believed to have been from the same club and were subsequently registered after the  Feb 4th encounter.

    At a meeting last night of the LGFA Central Council, Kerry were stripped of the league points and fined €100.

    It means Mayo Ladies are still in the mix for a potential Lidl National League Division one semi-final.

    Mayo are now on 9 points – and in 5th spot on the table -  a point behind Donegal and Galway.

    Mayo have two further home games, facing Donegal next Saturday and Monaghan on Sunday week. Listen back to Mayo Manager Peter Leahy now as he shared his thoughts on the matter with Midwest Radio.
