Roscommon Ladies Connacht Final.

(Oldest Posts First)

Think we should give the women some attention they face Sligo in the connacht final on sunday at two in Mchale park. If anyone is at a loose end why not call in and support them.

Some very talented young women on the panel

been a while since we did anything in the ladies, be nice to see a bit of success, we seem to be able to mix ok at underage level, but at adult level we haven't really cut it. Best of luck to all involved.

Ladies into the All Ireland semi now, Meath in the semi, both teams operated out of Div 3 in the league, so no reason why they shouldn't be looking at playing in Croker in September.

I was at the game on Saturday one of the finest games of football i have seen in a long time more enjoyable then any lads game i have been at recently pitty they dont have a bigger following.

Some fine players on display such as Joanne Cregg Sister of liam who was on the junior roscommon team, Laura Fleming strong direct runner and a brillant goalkeeper not certain on her name.

They have beaten meath already this year twice to be exact so hopefully they can do it again. Im telling ye well worth going for a look i was amazed at the speed in which it was played at. It woud put some senior club games to shame

great to get a home semi final, also nice to have the two senior semis in The Hyde. For those who haven't watched a great deal of ladies football great chance to go see the top teams playing and shout on our ladies as well. Games are generally very free flowing and not really much of the negative tactics of the mens game, may also even see some kick passing!

Best of luck to the minors who play Longford in the B All Ireland this weekend and to the Senior girls who play Kildare in the All Ireland quarter final.
I think the minors should have enough to bring the title with them, playing a really good brand of football and while Longford have some very dangerous players, I think the minors will just have too much for them on the day, while the seniors are flying at the minute and will have much too much heart and desire for a Kildare team that play nice football but fall apart under a little pressure. I fancy this team has an All Ireland final in them. They should clear this hurdle easily enough and won't fear the bigger tests and better teams of Wexford, Meath or Tipp.

best of luck to both roscommon ladies teams a double would be nice at the weekend.

Roscommon had a very easy group stage which they got through with no difficulty really but kildare will be a much stiffer test which i hope they are ready for.

Unfortunately i think there will be only one winner of the intermiediate this year and that will be tipperary they are a senior side who even gave a hammering to meath who were in the all ireland final last year

Hard luck to the minors but a huge congratulations to the roscommon intermiediate women on an excellent win over kildare. They now take on meath again in the all ireland semi final in what was a repeat of last years semi final hopefully a different result. Best for roscommon on sunday was Siobhan Tully, Aimee oConnor and Laura Fleming.

Any word on when or where the semi final is?

Roscommon Ladies down to play Meath in Nowlan park kilkenny on Saturday at 4:45.

Disaster of a distance for them to travel and the time is not ideal funny selection of venue by the LGFA. They already had Nowlan park picked before the quarter final was played. Funny Set up

Best of luck to the girls be some achievement to get to croke park but it will be no easy task

In Kiltoom last Friday night Kilbride and Clann drew 3-3 to 0-12 in an excellent county in front of a great crowd . Clann probably the better team on the day but Kilbride's three goals kept them in it. Reply was fixed for Tarmonbarry this coming Friday but thankfully common sense has prevailed and the game is now in a much more neutral venue of Ballyforan. Dont think Tarmonbarry is fit to host county finals and the lights are of poor quaility is should never have been considered in the first place

The final was on Saturday evening not friday.

The intermiediate game between St ciarans and Kilglass was a brillant game

St Ciarans 1-16
Kilglass 3-13

Laura fleming getting player of the match for the losing side score 1-12 out of the 1-16

Well spotted i had Friday stuck on the brain due to the replay. It was great to have all games on the one day and in the same venue and have a bit of athmosphere at these games. The band leading the ladies for the parade was also a nice touch and i have never seen that at a ladie county final before. I know its only a small thing but its nice the see them get similar treatment to the men

The band was a nice touch should have had them for the 3 games but i know it would have been a long day for them.

Id prefer to have the mens finals in kiltoom absolutely no atmosphere in the hyde

Took a replay and extra time to find a winner and it was close to 11pm before tonights game finished. Well done to Kilbride on their county success.

A very enjoyable game, at HT it looked as if Clann were going to win but after that it was all Kilbride and they deservedly won the game. Saying this Clann missed a glorious chance with nearly the last kick of the game in normal time to win it. In many ways it would have been an undeserved victory as Kilbride had the better performance to that point. Clann were very poor for the last 3 periods, looked unfit, lacked any ideas e.g. kick outs and attacking options. On the other hand Kilbride looked fitter and were far better set up. Best for Kilbride were there 3, 6, both midfielders, 10, 14 and 26. The 9, and 10 were excellent but the 26 was outstanding and won every ball that went in her direction to set up endless scores for Kilbride. A great advert for football and a fantastic attendance.

The amazing thing about the Kilbride no 26 is the fact that she is just 15 years of age,Ollie Lennon and his management team trusted the talented Aisling Hanly to deliver the goods and she didn't let them down, kicking 3 frees and 5 from play, surely a record for a 15 yr old in a senior final!

She was on another level to anyone else on the field a class apart. Some footballer in fairness to her. I have seen and know girls 15 that have played for the county team so I wouldn't be singing managements praises for starting her I would be questioning why she wasn't before this.
