Tipperary ladies will remember Rachel Kenneally during league clash in Clare

Rachel will be in the thoughts of the Tipp players during the visit to Clare.

   

 Tipperary ladies footballers make the trip to Doonbeg on Saturday in the Lidl Ladies NFL Division 2 - Round 7  with sadness in their hearts after former player Rachel Kenneally was laid to rest on Thursday.

Rachel’s untimely passing, following a brave battle with cancer, puts football into perspective but the Premier County will be anxious to honour her memory with a positive performance.

Under Shane Ronayne’s guidance, Tipp boast a 100 per cent record in the second tier but opponents Clare have provided stiff opposition in recent times, particularly in championship fare.

Clare could do with the points, too, as they’ve collected just one victory from five outings so far this season, that sole win coming on the opening day.

However Tipp should return home with the points, a result that would have delighted Rachel.

The game throws in at 2pm.
