    The Westerners defeated Ulster champions Donegal by 1-22 to 3-12.

    The powerful full-forward line of Grace Kelly, Sarah Rowe and Rachel Kearns, propelled Peter Leahy's women top victory in Tullamore.

    They will now enter the knockout stages on the favorable side of the draw, avoiding Cork and setting up a likely meeting with Cavan.

  • Mayo forward Sarah Rowe has joined Women's AFL club Collingwood in Melbourne. She has become the second Ladies Gaelic footballer to join the WAFL and the second Mayo player after team-mate Cora Staunton to try her luck in the recently formed Women's AFL. Now in its third year, the WAFL has been a massive success and Rowe told Midwest Radio how much she is looking forward to joining up with the club.

    The former underage international soccer star and LGFA All Star nominee in 2017 explained how she sought advice from former Collingwood and Down player Marty Clarke who gave her an insight to the Magpies while she also revealed that she will not be turning her back on Mayo Ladies either, with the 2019 championship campaign very much in her sights. She also revealed how she battled throughout the 2018 campaign with a serious shoulder injury. Listen to the full interview with Midwest Radio below.

  • Ballina's Sarah Rowe produced a fine display in her first outing AFLW side Collingwood, scoring two goals while showing that she can transfer her Gaelic football skills to Aussie Rules.

    The Melbourne-based outfit were narrowly defeated by 2018 champions Western Bulldogs in a pre-season clash but the Mayo star was most definitely a shining light for the Pies.

  • Mayo’s Sarah Rowe says she is really looking forward to the challenge of playing in the AFL.

    Sarah was speaking at the launch of “20*20” which is a new initiative for women in sport.

    The campaign sets a ­target of 20 per cent more media ­coverage of women in sport, 20 per cent more female participation and 20 per cent more attendance at women’s competitions and events by 2020.

    Sarah Rowe has penned a one-year AFL deal with Collingwood.

    She will join the camp next month and return to play for her county in March.

    She says the opportunity to play professionally has really attracted her to the sport.
