Semi ticket proves tonic for the Blues

REACHING the last four of the Tesco Home Grown Division 1 League is a commendable achievement for the Jackies.

They'll now play Galway on April 26. Dublin's only draw in the campaign came away to Galway. In the fog.

On a final day of drama on League Super Sunday, Dublin's win in Cork saw them edge out Monaghan.

Dublin had beaten Monaghan in their first game of the season at DCU.

It's quite a boost for the Blues boss, Gregory McGonigle, who was without the majority of his established players.

Through travel, injury and other commitments, Dublin have only been able to name five of their starting All-Ireland team in the League games.

Yet that has allowed several of the younger players to come in and experience top-flight football, much to the delight of the manager.

"We are pleased that different players have got a lot more game time this season, so that has been a real positive from the League for us," stated Gregory.

In a five-star, five-goal display against Cork, the goals came from Nicole Owens (2), Hannah Noonan, Kim Flood and Noelle Healy.
