History in the making?

Galway forwards Olivia Divilly and Megan Glynn on the attack against Donegal.

FOR just the eighth time in the sport's history, Galway will contest a top-level senior ladies football final when they meet Cork at Parnell Park on Sunday (throw-in: 4pm).

The Donnycarney venue, along with St Tiernach's Park in Clones, will host deciders as the Lidl-sponsored National Leagues reach a crescendo with four titles down for decision, culminating in the eagerly-awaited Division 1 decider in the weekend's showpiece.

Galway have been the most consistent team in the top flight this spring and round-robin victories over Cork, Monaghan, Westmeath, Mayo, Tipperary and Donegal sealed top spot with 18 points picked up from a possible 21.

March's defeat to Dublin was the sole blemish in an otherwise flawless campaign and on the back of a convincing semi-final win over Donegal a fortnight ago, they now stand one win away from a ground-breaking first Division 1 title.
