Longford ladies looking forward to Croke Park All-Ireland Final showdown against Antrim

Longford ladies looking forward to Croke Park All-Ireland Final showdown against Antrim

Longford ladies footballers make the journey to Croke Park on Sunday as they face Antrim in the TG4 All-Ireland Junior Championship decider.

Longford have prepared diligently for the final which will be televised live from 11.45am and they'll be determined to win a first title in this grade since 1997.

Longford captain Mairead Reynolds remarked,  “This year, at the start, I was wondering what was going to happen.

“No one had belief, then all of a sudden people started coming to training and we thought we could do something.

“Now we finally believe we can do it and are good enough. It’s great and there is a boost in the clubs.”
