VIDEO: Republic of Ireland legend wishes Crosserlough ladies good luck

All roads lead to Sheelin Park, Ballymachugh this Saturday as the ladies of Lurgan and Crosserlough face off in the Keogan's Imperial Ladies SFC final (throw-in, 4pm).

The Virginia-based side, under the guidance of manager Finian Farrell, will enter the match as favourites as they gun for a four-in-a-row. Lurgan completed a hat-trick of Michelle Keating Cup triumphs last season when they defeated Mullahoran by 4-18 to 1-5 in the final and they have been in excellent form this season again.

However, they will face a stern challenge from a young Crosserlough side who defeated Killygarry in the semi-final. And the Lough have former Republic of Ireland striker Niall Quinn in their corner, too!

Crosserlough ladies chairman Dessie Smith caught up with Quinn in the Boar's Head, Capel St, Dublin (owned by Arva man Hugh Hourican) last Sunday and Quinn delivered a good luck message to the Crosserlough girls (see video below).
