Mayo manager Peter Leahy said he was not one bit surprised to see his team sparkle against Cavan in the TG4 ladies All-Ireland football championship and that his side did their talking on the pitch after a fractious week away from it.
The Mayo LGFA has given its full support to manager Peter Leahy after ten of his squad and one of his assistants walked out last week citing 'personal and sensitive' concerns relating to player welfare.
"It is going to be something different and really special. Dublin have had so many championship games in Croke Park and they have lit up the place so now we are going to see them up in Tyrone and people are very excited about that."
"It was an unbelievable battle. We stuck to our guns and stuck to our game plan and I'm just delighted that the lads held out in the end. This was always about the players. It was never about anything else and by Jesus they deserve it."
