I think that one of Countryripple's "itsy bity leagues" will have a good chance in the Senior cup. Mayo or even Limerick perhaps - they were seriously understrenghth against Dundalk last year. Perhaps Lifford Ladies will succeed this time around - if all their international players are back in Ireland they must be serious contenders.
Intermediate and Junior I believe is a lottery (as is underage cups) - potentially too many players on holidays.
I know what everyone in the female game says about holidays - it's the same for everyone. But, how can it be if 6 of your regular first team players are on holidays, the opposing team have 1 player on holiday and the WFAI tells you that your quarter final match must be played or you give a walkover?!??!?
