Cora certain to produce tray of DCU treats

CORA Staunton is coming to town. Get out your best china.

Dublin against Mayo at DCU on Sunday will resemble the treat of Afternoon Tea at The Shelbourne.

Mayo beat Laois in their last game in Swinford. Mayo scored 1-14. Cora's tally was 1-10.

Cora is a wonder of the world. Nine All-Stars. And still turning heads …. and defenders.

Mayo gave Cork a rattle on the opening day. Cork edged it in the end. The Dubs are unbeaten. They won impressively against Monaghan in Glasnevin before securing a foggy draw against Galway at Tuam Stadium.

Sarah McCaffrey rescued the point for the Jackies. Sarah also had a cracking match against the Farney Army, scoring three points.

Niamh McEvoy offered much as the leader of the attack against Monaghan. She was forever showing for the ball and using it to good effect.

Mayo showed their fitness and finesse in the second half against Laois. It was 0-5 each at half-time.

Their manager is Frank Browne. They have soccer internationals in Sarah Rowe and Aileen Gilroy.

And class forwards in Fiona McHale and Martha Carter.

Not to mention the master-craftswoman.
