Leitrim Ladies Set For Down Task

This is the second of two dead rubber fixtures this weekend, Down and Leitrim are out of the running for a semi-final place, after both counties lost to Meath.

The Royals had a much tougher time of it against Down, which would suggest that the Mourne County will start as favourites to end their campaign on a high with a win against Leitrim.

Jessica Foy has the potential to run up a big score for Down (she landed 1-5 against Meath), while Leitrim will look to the scoring prowess of Michelle Guckian, who scored half of her side’s 0-10 in the Meath defeat.

Down: A Burns, C Cunningham, C Byrne, A Greene, O Duffy, K White, M Adegbamiye, C Fitzpatrick, O Lavery, A.M. Magee, J Foy, K McKay (capt.), A McCarvill, N Ferris, M Doherty.

Leitrim: M Monaghan, C Owens (capt.), S Tighe, M.A. Maguire, A Quinn, Á Heslin, C Le Guen, C Tyrrell, E Kelly, D Rooney, M Devanney, E Bruen,  L Fox, M Guckian, V Egan.
