I’m only back in the door inside the last few minutes and having spent some hours behind the wheel I missed all of the action from this evening’s LGFA League Division One decider. From what I can gather our girls battled bravely against the all-conquering Rebels but in the end it was Cork who won out on a 1-10 to 0-10 scoreline.
It’s a first piece of silverware for new Cork manager Ephie Fitzgerald but for the Rebels it’s a tenth LGFA title in twelve years. Combined with their dominance in the championship in recent years, Cork really are a class apart in ladies football right now and they have been for some time.
Still, by the sounds of it, the Mayo ladies battled bravely in this evening’s decider at Parnell Park and they only gave up their unbeaten record in 2016 after a tough fight. There’s no disgrace in that and their great run over the spring surely augurs well for their prospects in this year’s championship.
Commiserations on this evening’s loss and the best of luck to them for the summer.
