Sinn Féin Cork East TD and party spokesperson on sport, Sandra McLellan, has congratulated the successful Cork ladies football team on their senior all-Ireland success at Croke Park on Sunday.

Speaking after watching the match

Deputy McLellan said:

“It was a fantastic game and a fantastic victory for the Cork ladies. It is a great credit to Eamon Ryan and his management team and to all the players that they had the strength and determination to come back after last years disappointment to add this title to the five in a row. Their record surely marks them amongst the best ever teams to play the game. Some of the individual performances were immense.

“It is a tremendous victory and we are all very proud of the team in Cork. We look forward to welcoming them back home this evening.”
