Ladies man: Ryan McMenamin hopes to steer St Macartan’s to Ulster glory

Tyrone side St Macartan's certainly face a tough task when they meet Monaghan kingpins Donaghmoyne in the Ulster Club Ladies Senior Football Championship final at Galbally today.

Donaghmoyne will be making their 13th consecutive appearance in the decider and on the twin scores of pedigree and form the scales are tipped in their favour given that their opponents have never won the provincial crown.

St Macartan's manager Ryan McMenamin, the triple All-Ireland winning Tyrone defender, will certainly need to call all his motivational powers into play if his side is to come up trumps against a team that has revealed a remarkable level of consistency since their first provincial final appearance in 2004.

Also today at Galbally (1.00pm), the ladies provincial junior final will take place between Kingscourt (Cavan) and Latton (Monaghan).

The Kingscourt team only came into existence three years ago and has made considerable progress in the interim while Latton will carry more experience into today's game.

In the ladies intermediate club football final, Kinawley and Shane O'Neill's will meet at Derrymacash, Lurgan tomorrow.
