Tyrone and Meath send out early warnings in the Ladies Intermediate Championship

Meath and Tyrone signalled their intentions for the this year’s TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate Championship at the weekend with big wins over Fermanagh and Wicklow respectively.

In their look-back on the weekend’s games on this week’s Sportsgirls Podcasts Ladies Football expert Deniese O’Flaherty commented on the two results.

Tyrone were too strong for Wicklow. Deniese said: “Tyrone lost the All-Ireland Final last year so I’m sure they’ll want to be in Croke Park on September 16th. Chloe McCaffrey got a hat-trick of goals and the Ulster side led 3-08 to 1-04 at the break.”

Wicklow got to the Leinster Final this year and are the Division 4 Champions but Tyrone playing at a higher level (Division 2) definitely helped: “I thought Wicklow might’ve got something out of this game or at least give Tyrone a game. I suppose when you are playing at a higher level it does help.”

Deniese went on to say: “A fantastic start of Tyrone and Wicklow face a must win game this weekend against Offaly.”

The other game produced 13 goals when Meath defeated last year’s All-Ireland Junior Championship Fermanagh 11-24 to 2-06.

Deniese commented on the fact that Meath are a strong side for Intermediate: “This is just mad. You talk about a tiered championship in the men’s game. I think there is an awful lot of counties that are too strong. No disrespect to Meath; a couple of years ago they were senior.”

Meath were knocked out of the Leinster Championship by Wicklow so they were out to make amends for that result: “Meath have some fantastic players. They were beaten by Wicklow in the Leinster Championship; a big shock. Maybe that was the kick in the backside they needed. Sorry Fermanagh you were on the receiving end of it.”
