The Louth football Final takes place on Sunday. Naomh Mairtin return to the fixture for the third year in a row. However, the last two visits resulted in a loss. Something they will be hoping to change this year. On the other hand, Ardee St. Mary’s are in the final for the first time since 2016.
The final comes just a week after the semi-final ties. Firstly, Ardee earned their place in the final with a three-point over Newtown Blues. Previously, Newtown Blues had won the last three championships in a row. As a result, Ardee will go into this final full of confidence.
Meanwhile, Naomh Mairtin continued their semi-final successes with a convincing win against St. Mochtas. It ended 4-16 to 2-16 in favour of last year’s runners-up. Surprisingly, Naomh Mairtin are yet to win a championship. This could be the year though as they enter this one as favourites.
Having scored 8-28 in their last two games, Naomh Mairtin are a force to be reckoned with. In spite of their big semi-final win, Ardee St. Mary’s are underdogs here. This may work in their favour as they can take the game to Naomh Mairtin.
Paddy Power are offering 8/11 for Naomh Mairtin to finally get over the line. Otherwise, a draw is 13/2 and Ardee are 6/4 underdogs.
LÚ TV’s streaming service is broadcasting the game.
