The Cork and Galway ladies went head-to-head in a skills challenge yesterday to raise funds for LauraLynn Children’s Hospice.
Players from both sides competed against each other in pairs with the fastest over a minute earning a point for their team.
There were five different skills challenges - right kick pass, left kick pass, press ups, crossbar challenge and keepy-uppies.
Tim Rabbitt's Galway held a slender lead at the break, but whatever Ephie Fitzgerald said to his players at half-time worked wonders as Cork came storming back to win by 0-16 to 0-11!
Together they have raised €4,405 for LauraLynn Children’s Hospice - https://www.gofundme.com/f/lauralynn-ladies-football-challenge

Cork manager Ephie Fitzgerald not too happy with his team’s first half display. The dressing room at half time will be interesting 🙈 pic.twitter.com/KXZhyWRnJg— Cork LGFA (@CorkLGFA) May 9, 2020
