Croke Park dream for Derry captain

Derry captain Cait Glass will lead her team against Fermanagh on Sunday 


"If you'd told me two years ago that I would be playing the game that I love in Croke Park, I wouldn't have believed you," says Derry captain Cait Glass ahead of Sunday's TG4 All Ireland Junior Final.

The Tipperary footballer will lead her adopted county into the all-Ulster decider with Fermanagh at 12.45pm and feels that her story is a message to "young girls out there."

Glass explains her background and the Derry drive to reach this occasion.

She said: "At the start of the year we considered not even fielding a team, but when we got together it was all about Croke Park, Croke Park, Croke Park!"
