Meath Minors travelled to a cold, wet, windy and totally miserable Knockbridge in Louth on Sunday confident after their victory over Wexford during the week. The forecast for the day was rain, rain and more rain. It didn’t disappoint! Both teams turned out for their warm ups. It was getting increasingly doubtful whether the game would go ahead as the pitch was just short of being flooded.
Let’s start at the end. When the final whistle blew both sets of supporters gave a generous round of applause. It was that type of match, honest, fiercely contested with no quarter given nor asked. Let’s be clear here. The intensity in ladies football sir, is as intense as any man’s game. Decades of playing and more watching, confirmed that to me. Now back to the start.
Mol an óige agus tiochfaidh siad”* goes the Irish sean fhocal and in a sunny Dunganny Saturday afternoon never was the adage more appropriate. Two fine U14 teams came to do battle. Both sides brought the requisites we demand, traits such as honesty, energy and endeavor. Throw in a dollop of skill and the ingredients for a cracker was in place. Longford from the throw in meant business.
