Clarke urging his Armagh girls to fire out a reminder

Armagh boss Ronan Clarke had not bargained for the harsh lesson dished up by Mayo last week.

But he believes the best response they can give is to overcome Galway in an important Lidl Division One National League tie at the Athletic Grounds tomorrow.

"Mayo caught us on the hop but we have taken stock and we believe we are ready for Galway," said Clarke. "They will be very keen to get the points and we have to be on our guard."

Armagh will be without hot-shot Aimee Mackin who has a calf injury but her younger sister Blaithin has the capacity to trouble the Galway defence.

Tyrone and Monaghan face demanding assignments against Dublin and Cork respectively and the Red Hands' chances of remaining in the top bracket will become rather bleak should they lose while Monaghan need points to stay among the frontrunners.

Donegal put their unbeaten record in Division Two on the line against unbeaten Clare.

Leading scorer Geraldine McLaughlin said: "We're happy with our start to the league but we have to keep our focus."

In Division Three, Fermanagh take on Roscommon and Down oppose Tipperary.
