Role Models No Matter The Result – The Ladies Of Mayo LGFA

Being part of one of the most GAA mad counties in Ireland takes you on one of the craziest rollercoasters you’ll ever be on.

Mayo GAA fans have the privilege of having outstanding men and women represent Mayo within intercounty football.

For many years I always focused on Mayo’s hunt for Sam Maguire and often forgot about our amazing ladies that line out in the Mayo jersey each year.

One question that gets asked each year “Why do girls give up sports ?”

Like many, I myself overlooked women’s football until I went to see them in action for myself.

For the younger generation of ladies football in Ireland, it’s so important for them to have brilliant role models to look up to.

Mayo ladies’ football has been through a lot over the years but as I have said before we are witnessing a new era of Mayo LGFA and only the begining of some soon to be brilliant careers.

Many of the current future stars would before say they look up to the likes of Andy Moran, Keith Higgins but now the future get to say I want to be like Kathryn Sullivan , I want to be the next Fiona McHale/Shauna Howley.

We all know in life sometimes you win some and sometimes you loose some but when bad days come you just have to carry on.

Although our girls came up short against Galway after a great comeback in the second half, one loss doesn’t define a team.

I have no doubt with the great leadership of Kathryn, our girls will go far in this years All Ireland campaign.

Now if yoyur sitting here reading this thinking “Sure its only about the men”, I can guarantee you will eat those words once you see our girls in action.

Congartulations to Galway on the win but as Mayo always do we keep our heads up for the next awaiting battle.
