Busy week of ladies football action in Wicklow
THE action in the ladies football scene in Co. Wicklow is about to get a lot more frantic as the championships close in on the big days with key battles scheduled in various venues this week and weekend.
On Thursday in Annacurra the defending champions will revisit the scene of their last defeat where they take on Damien Redmond’s AGB in the county Senior semi-final.
It was St Pat’s who put the mighty Tinahely to the sword in the league final a few months ago and Damien Redmond will be hoping for a similar shock result when he sends his charges out on Thursday evening.
