Derry Ladies set for finals day


STEELSTOWN have the chance to win a third successive Derry title when they lock horns with Ballymaguigan (1pm) on Sunday afternoon in Glen.

The game will be played as part of a double header that includes the intermediate final.

It’s a fifth appearance in the decider in six years for Steelstown who narrowly lost out to Kinawley in last year’s Ulster final, with the Oakleafers’ senior winners playing at intermediate level in Ulster.

Sunday is a repeat of the 2020 decider when Emma Doherty, Ella Rose Sainsbury, Aoife Collins, Leah McGonagle and Orlagh McGeough powered the city girls to a 1-11 to 0-3 win.

The intermediate final (3pm) will see last year’s junior champions Ballerin face a Coleraine side that needed a replay to fend off Claudy on their way to the final.

Ballerin were on the right side of a 4-12 to 2-13 thriller against Limavady.

It has been a busy spell for both teams who are on the title trail in their respective camogie championships.

The Eoghan Rua dual players are faced with a tough 24 hours, with tbeir camogie quarter-final with Lavey fixed for Saturday (5pm).

Craigbane will be hoping to go one better when they take on Lavey (5pm in Kevin Lynch Park) in the junior final.

It’s Lavey’s first season in adult competition and were 7-13 to 1-3 semi-final winners over Dungiven with Craigbane having an equally comfortable passage against Slaughtmanus in their semi-final.
