Cavan, Cork And Offaly Claim All Ireland Success


Ladies All-Ireland Senior Football Final

Cork 1-10 Monaghan 1-9

This All Ireland final began with both teams exchanging points yet it would be Cork who would eventually come out on top in this encounter.

Cork were buoyed by the performance of Valerie Mulcahy who helped bring the coveted trophy back to Leeside. Mulcahy’s point taking ability was flawless while she also scored a brilliant individual goal to give Cork a healthy lead.

Her contribution was crucial , helping Cork establish a 1-6 to 0-6 lead at half time.

The Ulster side got into their stride with a brilliant second half. They were helped when Cork gifted them a penalty which Monaghan goalkeeper Linda Martin duly converted to put the Farney county in front.  Monaghan then dominated for a spell as Cork couldn’t hold onto the possession.

Cork eventually got back into this game to level matters with a few minutes to go before a late free from Mulcahy gave the rebels a single point victory to claim their 8th All Ireland title.
