Good point about Mayo and their support although Cork women footballers are better supported than the men! There was over 34,000 at 2016 final when they last met so perhaps 50,000 is over ambitious.
Probably true to say that senior women are the elite of women’s teams sports. Lyndsey Peat got on to the rugby international team. Difficult to think of any of them making the reverse transfer.
Used to be dreadful stuff to watch but improving skill levels and phenomenal athleticism have made it one of best team sports, including most men’s football, to watch at senior level.
