Don't miss your chance to see the Tipperary ladies football team take on Galway at New Inn on Saturday night

Aishling Moloney and Samantha Lambert.

Bansha will host the Lidl National Ladies Football League division one clash between Tipperary and an undefeated Galway side on Saturday evening, March 16 (5pm). The Premier County are fresh from an encouraging performance against Donegal (3-9 to 3-11) and, of course, a rousing win over Cork at Páirc Uí Rinn. Right now Tipperary are second from bottom in the division one table (Monaghan are bottom) while Galway are joint-top alongside Donegal.

Following the contest with Galway the side managed by Shane Ronayne will host Monaghan (March 23rd-24th) and then complete their league programme away to Westmeath (April 6th-7th).

Ardfinnan's Samantha Lambert captains the side this year for the third successive season while Lauren Fitzpatrick (Ballymcarby, Waterford) has been appointed as the new vice-captain.

Manager Shane Ronayne is joined on the management team by Tony Smith, Ed Burke and Sarah Jane Burke while James O’Leary takes responsibility for the strength and conditioning of the side.

Camida and Tipperary Spring Water are the proud sponsors of the Tipperary ladies football team.
