Another Sunday, another huge day for the county, another All-Ireland final at Croke Park against Dublin. This time it’s the ladies who are in the limelight, with a record attendance for a final expected at HQ today as the two counties battle it out for possession of the Brendan Martin Cup. The LGFA senior final throws in at 4pm today.
Like the lads a week ago, the ladies go into this final as outsiders. Despite this, Frank Browne’s charges come into this decider in a determined mood and, having gunned down long-time champions Cork in the semi-final, they’re well ready for the challenge facing them at HQ today. The team has a nice mix of youth and experience, with plenty of pace in the ranks and no shortage of firepower in the forward division.
I’m looking forward to heading into Croke Park myself later on to cheer them on. I’ve no doubt that many of you will, once again, be making the long trek from the west to lend your support too. They’re well worth it – this is a super Mayo team and there’s every reason to believe that they’ll claim glory this afternoon.
The very best of luck to them. Up Mayo.
