On target: Armagh’s Aimee Mackin scores a goal

Dublin Ladies made it to their seventh consecutive All-Ireland football final in Kingspan Breffni on Saturday night, but not before a serious tussle with a highly-motivated and talented Armagh team.

This was the first All-Ireland semi-final for the Orchard county in five years, and with only two players - captain Kelly Mallon and Caroline O'Hanlon - over 26, it would seem if they can keep this group together under the present management a breakthrough is achievable.

Their obvious disappointment at the end was so thick you could chew on it. That is a very good sign indeed.
