OFFALY ladies footballers have announced their team for the National League Division 4 semi-final this weekend.

Offaly play Louth in Clane at 4.30pm on Sunday and have made one change from the team that defeated Limerick in their last game with Niamh Lydon of Ballinaere/Durrow coming in for Aoife Carey.

Lydon will partner Amy Gavin-Mangan at midfield and Offaly have named a strong team. It features camogie and ladies football dual stars, Roisin Egan and Grainne Egan – Roisin is fro,m Naomh Ciarain while Grainne plays camogie with Shinrone and ladies football with Tullamore. Grainne was named as the national camogie player of the month earlier this week.

Offaly have performed well so far under manager, Cloghan man Gary Daly. They have beaten Carlow and Limerick to top their group. Louth finished up as runners up behind Leitrim in their group but it looks to be a fairly evenly matched game on paper.
