Interesting Intermediate final on cards

Ladies Football Intermediate Championship Final Saturday at 2.45 pm in Knockcroghery Éire Óg v Kilglass Gaels Fans of ladies’ GAA in this county will be treated to an hour of great entertainment by the young women of Loughglynn and Kilglass this Saturday afternoon in Knockcroghery. Éire Óg and Kilglass Gaels will compete for the county intermediate football championship in a repeat of an exciting league match that ended in a draw some weeks ago.   This final was postponed earlier this September following the tragic passing of Brian King and he no doubt be remembered by many of those who will attend this match.   The girls of Kilglass Gaels, managed by Roscommon senior football defender Richard Dooner, were lucky to overcome Oran in a tremendously entertaining county semi-final several weeks ago and they will take to the field determined to seize the opportunity presented to them by fortune this year.    The final will represent the climax of a year of dedication and commitment on the parts of everyone involved with the Éire Óg panel. Since February the Loughglynn and Lisacul ladies have been training twice weekly and these girls believe that their club’s name will be on the cup this winter. Éire Óg comfortably defeated Castlerea St. Kevin’s in the county semi-final earlier this autumn.   Éire Óg are probably marginally stronger than Kilglass and they will be determined to progress on to the senior championship after Sunday. Kilglass’s team is an emerging force in Roscommon ladies’ football, however, and the match thus promises to be keenly contested until the final whistle.    Emer Walsh, Louise Tully, Aoife McGuire, and Nicola Tully at full-forward must perform well for Kilglass on Saturday. They are the leaders of their team, and Louise Tully in particular will have to play well for her club.   Captain Rebecca Madden and her sister Ruth will hope to win the midfield battle for Éire Óg who will also look towards Katie Barrett and Michelle Mulrennan for leadership on Saturday.   Roscommon People prediction: Éire Óg .
