Dublin Come From Behind To Seal Four-In-A-Row After Cork Victory

Dublin Come From Behind To Seal Four-In-A-Row After Cork Victory

Dublin Ladies Footballers picked up their fourth consecutive All-Ireland title, following a 1-10 to 1-5 victory over Cork in Croke Park this afternoon.

Dublin were second best in the first half, but played some excellent football after the break to win another All-Ireland title. Cork have now been eliminated by Dublin in the past three seasons, having previously won 11 All-Ireland's from 2005-2016.

Cork had a dream start to the game, with Aine Terry O'Sullivan finding the net in the third minute and Ephie Fitzgerald's side held a 1-3 to 0-3 lead at the interval.

Dublin improved after the interval however and Carla Rowe's 35th minute penalty put Mick Bohan's side in front for the first time

That was to be the games turning point, as Dublin pushed on for a five-point victory, to claim their fourth title in succession and cap off a brilliant weekend for Gaelic Football in the capital.

Bohan explained how he didn't say too much to the players at half time and praised the more experienced players in his team.

"I didn't say a whole heap in fairness. They've become problem solvers themselves like. Realistically that's definitely one of the things that has evolved with the team this year, is that they've taken more ownership and their solving a lot of problems, so more or less with obviously a little bit of direction, but more or less they're coming up with solutions themselves.

"I have to hand it to the older girls in that group. They've been incredible leaders. Not just in how they carry themselves or train, but the information they pass on. The younger girls have become students of the game and the older girls have become teacher's. That's the environment we've tried to create and we're particularly happy with that."
