This weekend sees the Laois ladies footballers take on Cavan in Cavan in their final group game of the division 2 league.

Although Laois are relegated from the second-flight division, this is a make or break game for Cavan, as they are fifth in the table with two games to go.

The game ultimately decide whether they qualify for a semi-final spot and the prospect of qualifying to play Division 1 football next season.

Mona Sheridan, long seen as a stalwart of Cavan ladies football, took to Twitter to express her disgust at the game being played at Crosserlough rather than Breffni Park.

“I’ve been playing and representing Cavan LGFA at senior football with pride for 11 years yet still to this day we struggle to get Breffni Park (our county ground) for a Game,” said the Mullahoran native.

“We play Laois at home this weekend in a crucial league game which may ultimately decide whether we qualify for a semi-final spot and the prospect of qualifying to play Division 1 football next season and once again we have to look further afield to be accommodated.”

She also spoke about the double header games involving ladies and mens teams around the county, but how Cavan ladies have yet to play in a game before their male counterparts.

“It was also a year that saw Dublin ladies play some of their league campaign in Croke Park.

“In Cavan we had no double headers and Instead we had to play Tyrone in another Cavan town pitch (looking down on Breffni) whilst the men played a league match at home.

“Next week we take on Kerry which has be fixed for Fitzgerald Stadium in Killarney which I look forward to
