Cork Ladies Win Back League Title With Victory Over Galway

Cork Ladies Win Back League Title With Victory Over Galway

The Rebelettes are back in business. After losing their title last year, they returned to win their 12th league title in Parnell Park today.

Not even a sensational late Louise Ward goal for Galway could prevent the Leesiders from holding out for a two-point victory - 1-12 to 2-7 - and retake the Division One Crown.

Speaking to TG4 after the win, Player of the Match Orla Finn reflected on her side's performance.

Last year after losing the semi-final we really wanted to get back here this year and we worked really hard at training.

We have an unbelievable panel this year. We go from strength to strength. We have five, six or seven subs that can come on in same position as starting players. But it's great for us at training because we're all pushing for starting positions and that's what drives us on

Meanwhile, it was a bitterly disappointing day for Galway who were making their sixth final appearance. The wait for a win in a decider, however, unfortunately continues for the Tribeswomen.

Earlier in the day, 1-4 from the boot of Maria Delahunty helped Waterford secure the Division Two crown at the expense of Kerry on a score line of 5-13 to 1-7

The comprehensive victory for the Déise will serve as a significant confidence-booster for them ahead of meeting Kerry again in the Munster championship next weekend.

Galway, in contrast, must wait until the end of June before meeting Mayo in the Connacht final while Ephie Fitzgerald's Cork have received a bye in the first round of their provincial round-robin series with Waterford and Kerry.
