The Roscommon intermediate ladies’ football team have a clean bill of health ahead of their upcoming TG4 All-Ireland quarter-final against Louth on Sunday week.

Kate Nolan and Niamh Shanagher have followed in the footsteps of Honor Ennis by returning to full training in recent weeks.

Having beaten Kildare in a thriller to confirm their place in the last eight, a poor second-half performance against Longford on Sunday meant that Roscommon finished second in their group to set up a meeting against Louth, a side they beat by a point, 2-5 to 2-4, in the league last February.

“Any day you go out, you’re planning for 20 players. When you have a full panel, it obviously gives you a better opportunity. When you’re in a situation where if you lose, you’re gone, you want to be able to maximise your panel the best you can. We’re going to have to do that against Louth,” manager Ollie Lennon told the Herald.
