Watch: Cora Staunton Scores A Ridiculous 2-14 In Connacht Final

Cora Staunton might just be the best Mayo footballer of all-time. She proved that once again in Elverys MacHale Park in Castlebar today, scoring a frankly insane 2-14 to help her Mayo side sweep past the challenge of Galway in the Connacht final. Mayo prevailed on a scoreline of 3-20 to 0-14 meaning Staunton on her own was six points superior to Galway.

Staunton is well used to racking up huge totals (last summer we covered the fact that she scored 9-12 in a club game for Carnacon) but this is her 20th season with Mayo - she made her debut as a 13-year-old.

Elsewhere in the Ladies Championship - Monaghan (featuring Laura McEnaney - daughter of Monaghan men's manager Seamus Banty McEnaney) beat Cavan on a scoreline of 0-14 to 1-8.
