Kathryn Sullivan is one of six players to return to the Mayo team for Sunday’s game against Westmeath.


ON the weekend when the Ladies Gaelic Football Association will vote in a new President-elect, focus on the field of play is very much on the quest for prized spots in the Lidl National League Finals, and the battle against relegation.

There’s a full schedule of fixtures down for decision across the four Divisions on Sunday, which also marks International Women’s Day.

Division 1 champions Cork will take a massive step towards another Final appearance if they can overcome Donegal in Ballyshannon (1pm).

If Cork claim a fifth straight win to maintain their 100 per cent record, and Mayo drop points against Westmeath, the Leesiders will be through to the April 19 decider.

Mayo, however, could yet secure a top-two finish but would need to return to winning ways against the girls from the Lake County who they welcome to Swinford Amenity Park on Sunday for a 2pm start.

Mayo boss Peter Leahy has shuffled his pack yet again, making six changes to the side that started against Cork last weekend.

Laura Brennan starts in goal ahead of Aisling Tarpey, while there are also call-ups for Kathryn Sullivan, Ciara Whyte, Alannah Duffy, Rachel Kearns and Fiona Doherty, as Saoirse Lally, Clodagh McManamon, Roisin Durkin, Natasha Gaughan and Maria Cannon drop out of the side.

Mayo (v Westmeath): L Brennan; N O’Malley, N Moran, Ciara McManamon; K Sullivan, É Ronayne, C Whyte; A Duffy, S Cafferky; F Doherty, L Cafferky, M Reilly; E Brennan, R Kearns, M McHale.
