Longford Ladies Face Louth

2019 Junior Champions Louth are preparing for their first appearance back at Intermediate level.

Before Covid-19 hit, the Wee County were motoring well in Division 4 of the Lidl National League, having collected four wins from four outings.

They’ll hope to pick up where they left off against a Longford side smarting from the concession of 9-9 against Westmeath last weekend.

Michelle Farrell and Aoife Darcy collected 1-5 between them but Longford were hurt by the concession of a big total.

Kate Flood was player of the match for Louth in last year’s Junior decider at full-forward – and she’s named at centre forward here.

Louth: U Pearson, E Hand, S Quinn, E Murray, M McMahon, S McLoughlin, C Donnelly, A Breen, A Byrne (c), R Kavanagh, K Flood, A Russell, N Rice, E Byrne, L Boyle.

Longford: R McGrath, O Farrell, E O’Brien, G Reilly, C Mulligan, O Nevin, C Farrell, K Shannon, A O’Hara, M Farrell (c), A Darcy, G Shannon, C Lohan, E Heaney, K Burke.
