Armagh 3-12 Dublin 3-5

Armagh produced another big result when they defeated Dublin in Abbotstown on Sunday.  Aimee Mackin scored 1-9 as the Orchard County completed a double against last year’s All-Ireland finalists having defeated Cork already.

Aoife McCoy got a sixth minute goal but Hannah O’Neill responded with a Dublin green flag three minutes later.  Armagh led 1-5 to 1-4 at half-time before Lauren McConville got the second three-pointer for the eventual winners.  Carla Rowe’s goal on 46 minutes kept the Metropolitans in touch.

Mackin got her goal shortly after before Lyndsey Davey struck a third Dublin major nine minutes from time.

Galway 3-6 Kerry 1-10

Two goals in a minute turned this tie in Galway’s favour in Corofin as the Tribeswomen put one foot into the semi-finals.  After Louise Ni Mhuircheartaigh punched a Laura Rogers delivery on 34 minutes to give the Kingdom a 1-8 to 1-4 advantage, Galway responded emphatically.

Roisin Leonard finished a well worked move with a delightful low strike on 38 minutes.  And from the next attack, Davoren held off tight Kerry marking to put them ahead.

Kerry led 0-3 to 0-0 in the early stages but Leonard’s first goal put Galway ahead and they led 1-4 to 0-5 at half-time. (Highlights courtesy of Jerome Quinn)

Cork 2-14 Monaghan 1-12

The All-Ireland champions were made work for their fourth victory in Clones on Saturday as 1-5 in the final quarter got Ephie Fitzgerald’s team over the line.

Cork led 1-3 to 0-3 with Niamh Cotter getting a fifth minute major.  But Ciara McAnespie found the net before half-time and Monaghan led 1-8 to 1-6 at half-time.

The Farney women maintained their advantage in the third quarter but Rachel McKenna’s sinbinning had a major impact.  Eimear Scally got Cork’s second goal as they came from 1-11 to 1-9 behind to get the win and effectively book their semi-final place.
