On Saturday, in monsoon conditions, Derry Ladies footballers fought off a stern Limerick comeback to hold on (0-8 to 0-7) and keep their All-Ireland hopes intact.
“The whole thing was about getting to Croke Park. It was one step and the next one is the big one," Derry manager Paul Crozier told the County Derry Post.
The Derry boss knew what his team would face from the defeat at the hands of Limerick in the league.
“They were a big strong team and they can play football, but we didn’t let them. We were hungry – we wanted it more,” Crozier added.
Louth or London stand between Derry and a place in September's All-Ireland Final. Last year, like every other year, all the clubs in Derry had a busload of supporters in Croke Park. The video above is from St Canice's in Dungiven and their experiences.
They will be at Croke Park on September 16 for the 2018 TG4 All-Ireland Ladies Football Finals. Will you?
