Team News – Armagh vs Meath

It’s Clones this weekend for the Armagh ladies as they take on Meath in the All-Ireland quarter final.

The Orchard County have been in superb form, finishing top of their group with wins over Monaghan, Cavan and Mayo.

A victory on Sunday will see them through to the semi-finals, where their run ended last year against Dublin.

Ronan Murphy, as expected, has named an unchanged line up to the side that defeated Mayo in round three.

Niamh Marley limped off injured against Monaghan and will once again miss out. Kelly Mallon replaced the Lissummon midfielder and will once again wear the number eight jersey.

Catherine Marley has yet to earn a start, although she has appeared as an impact sub regularly. Has as Dromintee defender Shauna Grey.

Aimee Mackin was the hattrick hero the last day out and will once again be the focal point of the Armagh attack.

Aoife McCoy has been one of the unsung heroes on the team. She scored 0-2 against Mayo, as did Niamh Reel and Kelly Mallon.

Caroline O’Hanlon picked up a serious looking injury against Mayo and was substituted just before half time.

The Carrickcruppen star has been named to start against the Royals. But a late change could be on the cards before throw in.

Meath have also named the same 15 that defeated Tipperary last weekend, with a few positional switches.

Last year’s Intermediate Player of the Year Vikki Wall recorded 1-2 against Tipp, while Emma Duggan chipped in with 0-5.

Corner back Emma Troy is expected to pick up Aimee Mackin. That duel that could be worth the admission fee alone.
