"I'm in awe of this team" Áine Wall on Ballymacarbry ladies

Waterford ladies football legend Áine Wall believes that Ballymacarbry can end their 22-year wait for a Munster title on Sunday. Mike Guiry's team will take on Clare champions The Banner at the Mallow GAA Complex.

Wall won ten All Irelands and thirteen Munster titles with Ballymac but she feels that the current side is even better.

"People talk about the teams of old. We're not a patch on what this team are. They have come back year after year, defeat after defeat. More defeats than we had and they're still churning it out. Look at what they did to Mourneabbey this year, phenomenal. I'm in awe of this team. What they have done in the last ten years is a credit to them. People do look at what you achieve in terms of silverware. What this team have achieved in the last ten years to keep the club going in Ballymac when it would have been so easy to let it fall asunder and not to come back year after year. They've come back every year and they're a credit."

WLR will be live from Mallow on Sunday for the second half of the Munster club final with commentary team Tomás McCarthy and Michael Ryan.
