Mervue United Women looking to win Connacht FA Shield this Sunday

Mervue United is a club with great history and tradition and this Sunday they hope to add another chapter when they face Gurteen in the Connacht FA Ladies Shield Final (Kick off – 12.30pm).

It is the first time they have reached this decider, with an impressive 1-0 win over Straide and Foxford United of the Mayo League in the semi-final.

Last year’s final saw Dunmore Town take on Shiven Rovers in a game that the Newbridge side win on penalties after a dramatic 3-3 draw after extra time.

Their manager Noel Connolly is a well known figure in the game in Galway and he spoke to John Mulligan ahead of the final.
