Cavan Score Win Over Clare

Aisling Maguire’s six points and a 1-3 haul from Roisin O’Keeffe helped Cavan to a 1-13 to 1-9 win against Clare in Doonbeg.

Elsewhere in Division 2, Kerry are one point away from reaching the second tier final after they claimed a fifth straight win against Monaghan.

A penalty from Louise Ní Mhuircheartaigh had Kerry in control at the interval, but Monaghan turned the game in their favour thanks to goals from Rosemary Courtney and Ellen McCarron. Niamh Carmody reclaimed the lead for Kerry, while Andrea Murphy made sure of the 3-10 to 2-9 win with a third for the Kingdom.

Meath climbed into second place in the table after Monaghan’s defeat, and the Royal’s were delighted to edge past Armagh on a 1-21 to 3-5 scoreline at the Athletic Grounds.

While Tyrone are still in the hunt too after their comprehensive 4-17 to 0-3 win over Wexford.
