The second series of games in the Só Hotels Women’s National League kicks off this weekend, as every team in the league has now played each other once.

League leaders Peamount United have had the dream start to the campaign - picking up 21 points from the 21 on offer, while scoring 26 goals in the process.

In spite of that excellent start, Peas manager James O’Callaghan is expecting a tough game this weekend when his side travels to Bishopstown on Sunday (May 19) to take on Cork City at 2pm.

He said: "There’s no doubt that we’re expecting a tough game on Sunday. Cork have a great mix of experience and talented young players and they’re playing well. And Bishopstown is always a hard place to go. With that in mind, we’re really looking forward to the game, it should a good tie."

Defender Chloe Maloney remains out of action for the Peas through injury, but everyone else is available for selection for Sunday’s game.

O’Callaghan explained that his side are not taking anything for granted and are treating every game as seriously as the last.

He said: "I am very happy with how the players are doing, they are training really hard every week. And while we have had a good start, we really are taking it one game at a time. It’s still very early in the campaign and we have only played seven games at this stage, but we are obviously happy with how we’ve done in the first series."

Before this fixture, there are three Só Hotels Women’s National League fixtures on Saturday afternoon and evening.

First up, Shelbourne host Kilkenny United in Tolka Park on Saturday – that game has a 2pm kick-off at the Drumcondra venue.

And later that evening, Galway host Limerick at Eamonn Deacy Park at 6pm and DLR Waves take on Wexford Youths at 7pm.
