Sligo going to find it hard to get over heavy league final defeat


After watching Sligo fall to a 13 point defeat in the Lidl Ladies Division 3 Final to Meath last Saturday both Nadine Doherty and Diane O’Hara believe it will be tough for them to lift their spirits ahead of the championship this weekend.

Sligo take on Leitrim this Sunday in the Connacht Intermediate Championship. On this week’s Sportsgirls Podcast former Mayo captain Diane O’Hora admitted it will be tough for them to raise themselves for the championship after that heavy defeat: “It will be tough for them to lift themselves up for championship.”

Former Donegal player Nadine Doherty believes that defeat will hit Sligo hard and serious questions will probably be asked within the group of players: “I think that will hit Sligo hard going forward. If I was on that Sligo team I’d be questioning ‘where are we going now’ because that was just shocking stuff. It was hard to watch after 20 minutes.”
