The Ladies All-Ireland Football Quarter-Finals are underway this weekend and Kilkenny’s Nowlan Park hosted a double header on Saturday as Dublin and Waterford faced off against one another before Kerry and Armagh went toe-to-toe in the later throw-in.
The Dubs eased past Waterford in the opening match of the day with a 2-15 to 1-7 victory over the Déise who had already recorded wins over Kerry, Cork and Cavan thus far in this year’s championship.
In the second match of the day, between Armagh and Kerry, a cracker is currently on display at Nowlan Park with the Kingdom ahead 3-12 to 2-11 in the second half.
Kerry were down by two points at half time but a much improved second half performance looks likely to see them earn the victory.
The major highlight of the first half was an absolute cracking goal from Armagh’s Aimee Mackin. Mackin, who was instrumental in her side’s victory over Westmeath in the last round, blasted the ball into the far corner of the nett from a tight angle and the Kerry goalkeeper could do nothing about it.

That was Mackin’s second goal of the game but her brace wasn’t enough to prevent her team from ultimately falling to a 3-14 to 2-11 defeat.
Kerry will no face Dublin in the semi-final on August 26.
