Mayo Ladies Receive Huge Boost Ahead Of Connacht Final

Mayo Ladies Receive Huge Boost Ahead Of Connacht Final
By Ste McGovern

Cora Staunton will be back in the green and red of Mayo for the county's huge clash with Galway in the Connacht final on June 2.

The Gaelic footballer signed a new deal with AFL side Western Sydney Wanderers earlier this week following a terrific first season in Australia this year, leading to speculation on what her plans going forward would be.

The Cornacon player refused to be drawn on whether or not she would feature for her county in the championship in 2018, although she had accepted manager Peter Leahy's invitation to rejoin the senior panel following Mayo's league campaign, which ended in defeat to Dublin in the final.

A four-time All-Ireland winner with Mayo, Staunton has had to readjust to Gaelic football after spending half a year down under playing with the oval ball, although there are few players who can match her 22 years of experience in the game.

Cora Staunton's return will be of no little importance to the team, as they seek to stop a Galway side looking to claim their sixth Connacht title in seven years.
