Galway WFC wrapped up their first National League season with a 3-2 victory over neighbours Castlebar Celtic.
Galway WFC take a break from league action to make their debut in the Bus Eireann WNL Cup on Sunday.
Sunday is going to be an emotional day for the Castlebar Celtic women’s senior side when they face off against Peamount United in the final of the Bus Éireann Women’s National League Cup in Milebush Park. Along with dealing with the nerves of the biggest day that a lot of these players will have played in, they will also be keeping the memory of their late coach Jeremy Dee very firmly in their minds. At 2pm on Sunday a tree laying ceremony will be held at Milebush Park in memory of the late Jeremy Dee, who worked at Milebush for a number of years, along with coaching the Celtic side who have reached this Sunday’s final.
Castlebar Celtic women’s side took their first footsteps at the top level of women’s soccer in the country last weekend when they kicked off their Bus Éireann Women’s National League Campaign away to Wexford Youths. The long trip to Ferrycarrig Park was worth the journey as Celtic came home with a point in the bag after a 2-2 draw. Celtic twice took the lead through star striker Emma Mullin who was played up top as a long striker for the hoops, but Wexford were able to pull a goal back each time to ensure it finished in a stalemate.
On Sunday afternoon in Ferrycarrig, Wexford a new chapter will be written in women’s soccer in the county when Castlebar Celtic kick off their inaugural game in the Women’s National League. Celtic are one of six teams who will compete in the first ever FAI Bus Éireann Women’s League. More than 20 clubs applied to be part of the league and Celtic are one of the lucky half dozen to be invited to take part in this new adventure. The other sides taking part in the league are Peamount United, Cork Women’s FC, Raheny United, Shamrock Rovers and Celtic’s opponents on Sunday, Wexford Youths. That list of clubs has Celtic as the only side in both Connacht and Ulster to make the league and offers them a wonderful opportunity to make their mark on the game at a national level. It will represent a big step up for the hoops who have been playing in the FAI Intermediate Cup for the past few years, where now they will be pitting their wits against the best of the senior sides in the country. Celtic will be guided by the management team of Michael McNicholas and Jeremy Dee from the touch line with the likes of Irish international Emma Mullin along with a number of other experienced players who have joined recently doing the business on the field they hope.
A couple of months into his reign as manager of the Mayo ladies’ senior side, Tuam native Kevin Reidy is looking forward to his side’s National League division one final against Cork on Saturday May 9. “I’m looking forward to the final, it was a very tough game last Sunday against a very physical Laois side.” Reidy’s ladies’ side came out on the right side of a 3-10 to 0-13 win in Aghamore thanks in no small part to a player of the game display from Kilmaine sharp shooter Emma Mullin. She hit 3-4 for Mayo from play, while Cora Staunton landed five points on the day, four of them coming from frees as she was shackled by the Laois defence.
Galway ladies celebrated a successful weekend with both the seniors and juniors recording victories over Mayo to claim provincial titles.
The long lay off, of five weeks since their defeat at the hands of Galway in the Connacht final, did not do Mayo too much harm last weekend when they finally got back to championship action. Kevin Reidy’s side, which lost their provincial title to Galway back at the start of July, were slow coming out of the blocks against Laois and found themselves 1-6 to 1-2 down early in the first half, but inspired by player of the match Emma Mullin they ran out seven point winners in Pearse Park, Longford. That win has set up tomorrow’s meeting with Ulster champions Tyrone in Ballymahon, Co Longford, for a right to make it to the last four of the competition.
