Graham Shine makes one change to Limerick side for All-Ireland Ladies Football Final

The team is captained by Roisin Ambrose and she is one of four players that remain from the 2018 success over Louth.

Graham Shine has named his Limerick Ladies Football side for their Lidl All-Ireland Junior Final with Down this Sunday in Croke Park.

Into the side comes Caoimhe McGrath as she replaces Iris Kenneally from the team that defeated Fermanagh in the semi-finals. McGrath replaced the injured Old Mill star and wasted little time in making her mark, kicking 0-6 in the second half in the last four victory.

Elsewhere it’s as was against the Lakeland County with throw in Croker this Sunday at 11.45am with the Intermediate and Senior Finals also on.

The team is captained by Roisin Ambrose and she is one of four players that remain from the 2018 success over Louth alongside Cathy Mee, Amy Ryan and Katie Heelan. Mee and Ryan start in attack while Ambrose is in midfield. Heelan is kept in reserve.

This will be Limerick’s first final since 2018 when they bested Louth at the same venue. They were relegated the following year and lost three successive semi-finals before getting over the line against Fermanagh last time out.

Down will be seeing an immediate return to the Intermediate ranks after suffering relegation last year.
