Another actioned packed evening at Croke Park Dublin Senior Footballers and Ladies Footballers continue in the League
Dublin v Cork
LIDL National Football League (5:15pm)
Dublin v Mayo
Allianz National Football League (7:30pm)
Saturday, February 19th. Croke Park, Dublin
Another large crowd is expected tonight at Croke Park as we’ll be treated to the second double header this year. Last time out the Dublin Senior Hurlers and Footballers were the lineup. This time out the Hurlers make way for the Dublin Senior Ladies Football Panel.
And after their opening round win over Waterford last week in Dungarvan, Mick Bohan will want to build on that against a wounded Cork side. Without their Mourneabbey contingent, Cork were still competitive against Meath in Navan last Saturday, losing out by just two points against a strong Royal County outfit. Their job will be to regroup against a Dublin side looking to improve.
It’s a must win for Cork, but not one Dublin will want to lose ahead of facing Meath in Round 3. Throw in for this game is 5:15pm.
Then at 7:30pm Dublin face Mayo, the side who unseated them from their long All Ireland reign last year. And after 2 defeats in this year’s Allianz League Campaign, the Dubs will need a result from this fixture to save their league.
Dessie Farrell is trying to add depth to his panel and young players like Lorcan O’Dell, Cameron McCormack, and Darragh Conlon have shown some promise, but the longer they go without a win the more the pressure will build.
James Horan’s team played with great guts in both the draw with Donegal and win over Monaghan but attitude has never been a problem for the Connacht side. Mayo will be coming to Dublin to add another victory to their column.
