Not true Terry as my aunts team, Old Castle Bohemians Ladies F.C were asked to join the club as the womens teams but rejected the offer as they were happy as they were. And also Galway United are not stuck in the Stone Age as the team that they invited has won 10 out of the last 11 league titles and many trebles along the way. They are the best womens team in connaught after winning the Connaught cup agin this year and usually do very well in the FAI womens cup. So at least Galway United have taste in womens abilities....some of them play for Ireland and some are only 14,15,16 and 17 years old but the majority of the team are experienced players who are getting too many medals

Afaik, this team is gone. They started off well enough but I dont think the club or supporters took any interest in it.

Absolutely brillaint stuff - that is fcuking hillarious! I suppose it's better not playing instead of a nail or getting dirty!


I may seem I don't support women's football but in fact I am quite a keen supporter of Ladie's soccer! In the past few months I have watched many Raheny Utd and Stella Maris games - some good female players out there!

Well in situations where the captain is also the team secretary and does some of the coaching and none of the others do very much you can understand how this happens!

Fair play to her for doing the whole show on and off the field! I think that is one problem in women's soccer that there is just 2/3 decent players carrying one team! On the girl's soccer team in my school a couple of years back there were just 2 good players while the rest only joined to get a half day! Says it all really!

So Derry City are active in two countries' leagues and two FAs ? :eek:

Can someone tell me why there is no nationwide ladies league? We have one in Northern Ireland (of course smaller distances, but still...)

Always fun to play with the ladies :o ehm, sorry, to watch them play :D

COBH RAMBLERS: Member of the Cork Ladies League for the past 6 years or so.

CORK CITY: Still in the stone age no women's team.

Premier Cup Finalist this year but went one better and won the WFAI in 2005. Beaten in in a play-off for second place in the League by Peamount United.

FINN HARPS: A sister club is in existence Finn Valley Ladies. The new stadium in Stranorlar is going to be home to Finn Harps. Was originally also going to be home to Finn Valley Athletics club and the Finn Valley Ladies Soccer team as well. Looks like the merger with athletics may not take place.

Just two things little things. I wouldn't like to say we 'took over' Bealnamulla, but rather linked up with them. They very much have their own committee still in place who do an excellent job.

The other thing is the midland clubs don't play in the LFL anymore. They split from it at the start of this season when the clubs from the Counties Divisions joined with the OWL League to form the new Combined Counties Football League. There are nine teams in the new women's league, namely Bealnamulla/Athlone Town, Eureka United, Clara Town, Tullamore, Mullingar Athletic, Birr Town, Allenwood, Forest United and Killavilla United.

No they are from Ceannans Mór (a.k.a. Kells) and I think they may have folded as so many of them play GAA :eek: and seem to prefer to play an insular game with no international outlet!

Well they had to pull out of WFAI competitions last summer citing lack of players. Maybe they have reformed.
