Abbey Hotel Roscommon Ladies SFC Final
Kilbride v Clann na nGael on Saturday in Kiltoom at 4.45 pm
It’s the clash of the great rivals Clann and Kilbride in the county senior final once again this year and with Kilbride going for four titles in a row, Clann will be hoping to stop them.
Kilbride have ruled the roost in Roscommon club football over the past few years but the evidence is that the gap is closing and Clann will come with a real chance on Saturday. They know that they have the measure of Kilbride after beating them in the league final earlier in the year.
Ollie Lennon’s side has loads of experience and with the likes of Tara Taylor, Rochelle Mullaney, Siobhan Tully, Sinead Clabby, and Alice Kelly on board it is hard to look beyond the champions. But Clann have very competent performers in Ruth Finlass, Kelley Colgan, Megan Kelly, Emma Kildea, Kara Earle and Kayleigh Dunning and the major success at underage level that they have had in recent years will surely soon transfer into senior titles.
In last year’s final the experience and know-how of Kildride were the decisive factors and they know that Clann are getting closer to them with each year that passes by. However, there may by one more year in the champions and I take them to win narrowly on Saturday and make it four titles in a row.
