Ulster Ladies Football Final: Armagh ready for ‘ding-dong battle’ with Donegal

Armagh will be eager to re-establish themselves as champions of Ulster and continue their brilliant form in 2024, which former Dublin boss McGonigle hopes to maintain heading into this year’s All-Ireland series.

To do so, the Division One champions will need the likes of Aimee Mackin and Kelly Mallon to repeat their stand-out performances in the top-flight decider where they combined to hit 1-9 against the Kingdom in Dublin last month.

A win on Sunday for Donegal, and new boss John McNulty, would accelerate this new-look side’s development after a promising third-place finish in Division Two.

“A bit like ourselves, Donegal are under new management, Maxi [Curran] has departed the scene,” McGonigle added.

“They’ve had a decent enough campaign as well.

“They were trying to blood a lot of new players in Division Two and some of the results have been very good.

“They beat a good Tipperary side as well, so we’ll need to be ready for the weekend of the 19th of May.”
