IFC & JFC Final showdowns this weekend!

Castlerea Vehicle Recycling Ladies IFC Final

Western Gaels v Pádraig Pearses in Knockcroghery on Saturday at 3.15 pm: Pádraig Pearses are hoping to follow up their success in last year’s junior championship with another win here but they will be up against it against a strong looking Western Gaels side.

Pearses will be looking to the likes of Heather Payne, Jenny Downey, and Áine Galvin for inspiration while Western Gaels have the likes of Jenny Higgins, Martina Freyne, Sharon Bruen and Shannon Dowd to mention just a few.

Western Gaels look to have just too much firepower and experience and they should be good enough to take the title. Prediction: Western Gaels

Percy French Hotel Roscommon Ladies JFC Final

Michael Glavey’s v St. Faithleach’s on Saturday in Knockcroghery at 1.30 pm: Glavey’s will be looking to the Roscommon players like Joanne Cregg, Sheila Brady and Niamh Fleming for inspiration while Cathy Daly and Margaret Fox are very experienced campaigners.

Carol Manning, Amanda and Laura McLoone would be Faithleach’s best known players and the club have a lot of very talented young players who will be hoping to make their mark in this final.

There won’t be much in this final and maybe the greater experience of Glavey’s might edge the outcome. Prediction: Michael Glavey’s

Note: The Junior B final between Kilmore and St. Dominic’s takes place on Friday evening at 8.30 pm in Kilbride.
