Dublin look to secure their knock out slot in the journey to a fourth consective TG4 Senior Ladies Football Championship
Dublin v Waterford
Saturday, November 7th. 1:00pm
Baltinglass GAA, Wicklow
We’re a long way away from hot summer Championship action. But nonetheless this year’s TG4 Senior Ladies Football Championship rolls on. And this afternoon Mick Bohans Dublin panel look to secure their place in the gauntlet of this special competition. A fourth consecutive All Ireland title is what’s at stake for the Dublin Ladies in a much shortened Championship run.
Today’s opponents Waterford met Dublin in last year’s competition and suffered a 5-15 to 2-06 hammering at the hands of the reigning champions. While the conditions today are very much different to other championship games, the action is expected to be the same.
Back in March of this year the sides met in the Lidl National Football League, and Dublin needed to dig deep to run out eventual 4-05 to 0-13 winners, so this afternoon Dublin will be prepared for a fight from the ladies of the Deise county.
A win for Dublin and it’s the Semi Finals, and another step toward a four in a row success. Manager Mick Bohan has named two changes to the side that beat Donegal in Cavan last weekend. Ballinteer’s Orlahgh Nolan comes into the Dublin defence, while Caoimhe O’Connor gets the nod up front in the forwards. Lauren Magee moves from midfield to the half back line, while Niamh McEvoy picks up that midfield slot alongside last week’s PLayer Of The Match Jennifer Dunne.
