Roscommon face Leitrim in Connacht ladies IFC final

A repeat of the 2021 final sees Leitrim, the holders, take on Roscommon in the Connacht intermediate final.

The Rossies are still basking in the warm afterglow of Lidl NFL Division 3 glory, but Leitrim had the upper hand when the sides met in the round-robin stage of the provincial competition.

Roscommon were winners of the Connacht Intermediate crown last back in 2019 and willl be quietly confident of bridging a three-year gap.

Laura Fleming will lead the Roscommon charge from midfield as captain, with Aisling Hanly a proven score-getter in attack. Leitrim will look to the scoring power of Michelle Guckian as they look to retain their provincial crown.

A former team goalkeeper, Guckian scored 1-24 in the Lidl National League and was named on the Division 4 Team of the League.

Leitrim: M Monaghan; E Quinn, S Tighe, S McCartan; C Tyrrell, C Owens (capt.), C Le Guen; M McGovern, N Tighe; L Dowd, M Guckian, E Bruen; R McHugh, L Fox, S Quinn.
