Ladies hope to end 40-year wait

SINCE its formation in 1979, the Galway Ladies Footballers have made the National League Division 1 final only five times.

Each and every occasion, Tipperary, in the inaugural year of the competition in ‘79, Cork (2005, 2010 and 2015) and Mayo (2007) have come out on top over the Tribeswomen who were forced to continue to wait for what would be their first ever National League success.

This Saturday, Galway enter into the semi-final of the 2019 Division 1 competition against Donegal knowing that should they win at Glennon Brothers Pearse Park in Longford, throw-in 2.15pm, they will be just one game away from ending this painfully barren run.
