Taggart sisters can point the way to a semi-final place


By Staff Reporter

Antrim face into a revenge mission tomorrow when they confront Derry in the All-Ireland Ladies Junior Football Championship Group B Round Three at Musgrave Park (2.00pm).

The Oak Leaf side overcame the Saffrons in the Ulster final, and since then both outfits have been beaten by Fermanagh in the All-Ireland series, thus setting up this showdown with the prize for the winners a place in the semi-finals.

Eimer Gallagher captains a youthful Antrim side that includes the talented teenage Taggart sisters Aoife and Caitlin, while Annie Crozier, Megan Devine and Erin Doherty will bolster Derry.

Also today, Antrim will take on Laois in the All-Ireland U16 'B' Camogie Championship final at Drumlane (Co Cavan).

Tomorrow, Armagh and Carlow will cross swords in the All-Ireland U16 'C' camogie final at Coralstown, Kinnegad (1.30pm).

Carlow beat the Orchard County by 5-11 to 5-6 earlier in the summer, but Armagh were impressive in beating Roscommon by 4-8 to 1-3 in the semi-finals, when full-forward Aimee Keenan scored a brace of goals while Ellie McKee landed 1-2.
