Cavan Ladies Set For Donegal Test

A place in the TG4 Ulster Senior Final against Armagh on June 30 is the prize on offer for either Cavan or Donegal.

Donegal’s hopes of a third successive provincial crown are very much alive, having got past the tough preliminary round challenge of Tyrone to make the last four.

That assignment will have blown away any post National League cobwebs, while Cavan are without a competitive fixture since April 21.

On that occasion, the Breffni girls lost out to Waterford in the Lidl NFL Division 2 semi-final, now they face their first Championship assignment of the season.

Donegal will start as favourites but Cavan have proven firepower in their ranks, with Aisling Maguire and Aishling Sheridan capable of causing the holders some problems.

Cavan lost out to Armagh by three points at the semi-final stage last year, and will hope to go a step further this time.

A Cavan win would send them through to a first TG4 Ulster Senior Final since 2016, but they’ll have to work hard for it against a seasoned Donegal outfit.

Cavan: E Walsh, K McIntyre, R Doonan, S Reilly, S Greene, S Lynch, J Moore, S O’Sullivan, N Byrd, A Gilsenan, A Maguire, D English, C Finnegan, A Sheridan, L Fitzpatrick.

Donegal: A McColgan, A.M. McGlynn, E Gallagher, S McLaughlin, N Carr, N McLaughlin, T Doherty, K Herron, E McGinley, K Guthrie, K Keeney, A Boyle Carr, N Hegarty, G McLaughlin, S McGroddy.
