Their final opponents and Connacht Champions – Sacred Heart School – have been brilliant this year, beating their archrivals Convent of Mercy, Roscommon 2-1 in an extremely close all derby decider.

Their National Cup semi-final saw them come up against a strong Carndonagh Community School. They eventually won out 2-1 with a last-gasp winner from Anne Sheridan, who struck a fantastic goal with extra time looming, to leave Carndonagh distraught.

Jenny Chambers had equalised right after Tara O’Connor netted the opener for Carndonagh with over a quarter of an hour played in the match.

The Mayo side are coached by Seamas MacEachmharcaigh with assistant coach Declan Moran and captained by Saoirse Ludden.

The final to be played tomorrow Tuesday will take place at Home Farm FC, Whitehall, Dublin at 1pm. It promises to be a fantastic game as both sides will be gunning to win their first all Ireland senior soccer title.
