Taggart got Antrim’s first goal in the 40th minute and then they took the lead for the first time since the opening seconds, when Prenter found the back of the net. Eimear Smyth was the game’s top scorer but she hit a penalty wide in the first half.

Leitrim 1-14 Roscommon 0-14

A first half goal from Leah Fox proved decisive as Leitrim retained their Connacht title with a hard fought win over Roscommon in Tuam.

Roscommon made a good start to the game and opened up a four point lead after eight minute. Michelle Guckian kicked over Leitrim’s first point before Fox got the goal to draw them level. A point from Laura O’Dowd edged Leitrim ahead just before the break but Roscommon drew level.

Roscommon kicked over the opening point of the second half but Leitrim went back in front minutes later with points from Megan McGovern and Fox. With Guckian in fantastic form Leitrim opened up a five point lead. Roscommon cut the gap to two twice but it was Guckian that kicked over the game’s final point to give her side a three point win.
