DONEGAL 1-07, CORK 4-09 at Ballyshannon.
DEFENDING champions Cork began the defence of their Bord Gáis Energy Ladies National Football League Division 1 crown with a comfortable win on their visit to Donegal today, racking up an 11-point victory.
Termon’s Geraldine McLaughlin was superb again in the county colours, hitting a personal tally of 1-04, but Cork were just too good.
Nollaig Cleary scored two goals for visitors – one in each half – and it was Cork who led by 2-04 to 0-03 at half-time.
Ciara O’Sullivan and Grace Kearney also raised green flags for the All-Ireland champions, who are targeting a fifth successive Bord Gáis Energy NFL Division 1 crown this year.
Geraldine McLaughlin had a great game but Cork already look as if they will continue to dominate Ladies GAA at this level.
