Ladies Football: Fox Cabs meet Garda in tantalising starter
CURTAIN up at the Dublin HQ with the Intermediate Final -- Foxrock/Cabinteely against Garda (7.0) -- an intriguing clash in Parnell.
Garda know all about Championship Final night.
But the Fox Cabs have been writing their own history.
All-Ireland junior champs, and with personnel that assisted in shaping Dublin's historic and very impressive first All-Ireland MFC success last month.
Dave Cullen's Dubs beat Tyrone in Breffni Park and helping them do it were Sinead Goldrick, Amy Connolly and Amy Ring. Kirstie McArdle was also on duty.
Then the club had two players who played against Tyrone in the TG4 All-Ireland Senior quarter-final in Roscommon, Ann-Marie Murphy, who scored Dublin's goal, and Ciara Murphy.
Garda have one of Dublin's finest ever footballers, Julie Kavanagh, in their corner. She'll give them good advice.
They had a fabulous semi-final victory over Parnells -- just two points in it.
Parnells are a highly-regarded side, boasting two of the Jackies, Avril Cluxton, sister of Dublin men's senior goalkeeper Stephen, and Niamh McEvoy.
The Fox Cabs were involved in a high scoring semi-final against Lucan Sarsfields when they prevailed by a commanding 14 points, 5-15 to 4-4. The South County Dublin Queens play a lovely brand of fast, flowing football.
But, as ever, Garda won't be slow in erecting the road-blocks around Donnycarney.
It's a contest that provides the perfect reason to try and beat the Dublin traffic.
As they say in the best of places, the perfect starter.
