WATCH: Donal Ryan – Limerick have “nothing to lose” heading into League semi-final with Leitrim

The Limerick Ladies Football team secured their passage into the league semi-finals with a 2-7 to 0-8 win over Carlow at the LIT Gaelic Grounds over the weekend.

Goals either side of the half were crucial for Donal Ryan’s side as they outlasted a stubborn Carlow outfit on the Ennis Road.

The visitors had a slender lead at the first water break and looked like maintaining that advantage into the break only for Andrea O’Sullivan to grab the games first goal just before the interval to hand Limerick the initiative.

Iris Kennelly’s effort shortly after the second half water break gave Limerick daylight and from here Ryan’s side made no mistake in advancing to the knockout stages.

Speaking in the wake of the game, manager Ryan praised the efforts of his side in getting the job done.

“We were hugely determined and we ground them down. Carlow were very resolute in defence but we knew we would find gaps because it was hard for them to keep going. Thankfully we got the gaps and got through. I thought we would have driven on more in the end but we got the win and that’s the most important thing.

“It’s a good boost because last week I think we could have won it. And you’re nervous then going in to a game after a loss. Credit to the girls, it was hard fought and they deserved it.”
