Lisa O'Rourke named in Roscommon ladies football team for meeting with Kildare on Sunday

Kildare were recently crowned Leinster champions but they could be out of the race for All-Ireland glory by Sunday evening.

Having fallen to a six-point loss against Longford last weekend, the Lilywhites must recover quickly against Roscommon, the Lidl NFL Division 3 Champions.

The Rossies are smarting, however, following their Connacht Final loss to Leitrim but the All-Ireland series is a new competition and will help to refocus minds.

This clash will revive memories of the Division 3 Lidl NFL semi-final clash between the sides, which Roscommon won by just two points, with four goals proving vital in March.

Roscommon have named world boxing champion Lisa O’Rourke at midfield for this home fixture, where she’ll partner skipper Laura Fleming.

Roscommon: H Cummins, S Kenny, R Fitzmaurice, R Brady, R Wynne, A McAuliffe, N Feeney, L O’Rourke, L Fleming (c), M McHugh, J Higgins, F Tully, A Hanly, N McHugh, C Conway.
