Record-breaking Clann Eireann ladies must maintain focus on future targets rather than reflect on past glory.

A 16th Armagh county prize recently provided a fresh chapter in the club’s progress but Ulster quarter-final commitments on Sunday will now take centre-stage.

The Armagh triumph against Carrickcruppin arrived with the Hoye sisters - Martina and Aoine - grabbing goals. Both players could prove central to Clann Eireann’s weekend progress.

However, the Lurgan ladies can also call on a string of players with county experience alongside big-match minutes.

Mags McAlinden, Naoimh Henderson, Sinead McCleary and Laura Brown will also be expected to produce on the Ulster stage.

Clann Eireann face St Paul’s Belfast on Sunday from 2pm with a semi-final spot the reward.
