Last weekend was a momentous weekend for the Tipperary LGFA side as they claimed their first win of this year’s league by beating one of the major scalps in football, Cork, in the Lidl National football league with Cahir’s Aishling Moloney grabbing a personal tally of 2-9 in her sides historic 3-13 to 1-18 win. Aishling’s fisted goal left Pat Spillane’s special from the 1986 All-Ireland final in the ha’penny place as she connected perfectly to leave the Cork goalkeeper with no chance. It was no surprise to see http://sportsjoe.ie named her on their Gaelic football team of the week. You can see their team here.
Special mention must also go to Caitlin Kennedy who, at sixteen years, showed composure and brilliance beyond her age to smash the winning goal to the roof of the net. The team displayed great maturity following Caitlin’s special to retain possession and starve Cork of the ball before the final whistle.
The side travel a huge distance this weekend to play Donegal in round four in Convey on Saturday afternoon and we wish them the very best of luck.

Check out Aishling’s goal below and compare it to Pat’s from 1986 at 2:40 minutes in the video underneath.
Another Tipperary LGFA player who is setting the playing fields alight is Aisling McCarthy as she continued her great form for the Western Bulldogs last weekend when she scored this cracking goal against Brisbane Lions in the third quarter. She continues to prove to be a great representative of Cahir, Tipperary and Ladies LGFA in general as well as an inspiration to all young players.
