Cora Staunton's Record At Club Level Continues To Amaze After Winning A 19th County Title

Cora Staunton's Record At Club Level Continues To Amaze After Winning A 19th County Title

Cora Staunton overcame the disappointment of losing an All-Ireland Final last month, by winning a 19th Mayo Ladies County Final on Sunday.

Staunton's Carnacon defeated Knockmore 3-17 to 2-09 in Swinford. The veteran captained the side to the win, is now is just one title short of an incredible 20.

The win was only Carnacon's second in the Championship this year. The side received three walkovers in the group stages before a comprehensive 37-point win over Castlebar Mitchels in the semi-finals.

Carnacon wing-foward Michelle McGing was named wing-forward in the win, as the south Mayo side now move into the Connacht Championship.

Cora Staunton's record medal haul continues to grow and shows no sign of stopping. With five All-Ireland club titles to her name, the Mayo side will look for a sixth in the coming months.

A win in Croke Park may ease some of the pain from the All-Ireland Final defeat to Dublin, a week after the men's side suffered the same fate.
