Dublin being in the final has a huge bearing on the Attendance. Meath and Louth also being close to Dublin would also you'd expect bring big numbers.

Way better than the mens. Dublin quite a bit fitter and stronger in tackle i thought which told in the end. They also played a sweeper which left cork not able to kick it in while dublin got loads of space.

Yes, Dublin unsurprisingly look better conditioned! ;)

Enjoyable, but long periods of handpassing and no foot involved.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Your posts in this thread are very transparent. Don't assume you're fooling anyone.

Transparent? You need to change the font setting on Gaaboard.
Perhaps you have wrong color

I'm not trying to fool anyone, I made two posts, one about a  nicely taken goal and another observation about the style of play.
You are losing the plot.

Good game, but I fear we're looking at an unstoppable Dublin juggernaut, as in men's football. Bigger population to choose from, more resources, hard to see what the answer is, as I love the Dubs

The effect of the financial doping is widespread. At club and county level in all age grades in both hurling and football and yes, ladies football too.

The skill level and enjoyment factor in ladies football is rising all the time. Today's game was one of the best games seen all year.

That was a worldie, reminds me of Gooch’s against Mayo in 2011. Art.

The way Carla Rowe finished her two goals was Gooch-esque alright.
Dunno why so many players go for power in that situation.
Just pass it into the net with the side of your boot.
No need to put the head down and bury it.
If you were any use you'd be playing.
