Former Armagh captain Caoimhe Morgan believes Meath can pull off a shock win over Cork on Sunday to reach the All-Ireland Ladies Football final.

While reigning champions Dublin meet Mayo on Saturday, the second semi-final will see the Royals take on the Rebels the following afternoon for the other spot in in the decider.

Looking ahead to the semi-final action on RTÉ's Morning Ireland, ex-All Star footballer Morgan said she was intrigued by what Meath could be capable of.

"I'm really, really excited about this one. I think it could be the shock of the championship," she said.

"Cork survived a scare against Waterford to seal them a semi-final spot in the group stages. Meath though did put Cork to the pin of their collar. They did win by a narrow margin and I'm sure they've learned an awful lot from the game.

"But I like to call it the 'Meath Machine'. We'll see an Eamonn Murray side that are so, so well-drilled, a process they've been working on since 2017 with fantastic quality players all across the pitch.

"They schooled Armagh in the quarter-final and if Cork don't combat Meath's game-plan, it could be the upset of the year so far I feel.

Hannah Tyrrell has made the transition from rugby seamlessly according to Morgan

"They came up from intermediate last year and are showing fantastic ability in the senior championship and I really feel they could go all the way."

Morgan is also tipping Dublin to overcome Mayo and join the winners of the first semi-final in the 5 September final.

"You'd have to really back Dublin though for this one. They've been steadily progressing throughout this campaign," she said.

"They were rocked a little bit in the first 10 minutes against Donegal in the quarter-final but showed their experience, work-rate and calm demeanour.

"Mick Bohan wasn't entirely happy with their performance and will want a better display from the start against Mayo.

"They have such quality players. You're looking at Carla Rowe who's showing great leadership at the minute, Hannah Tyrrell making the transition from rugby look really seamless and when you look at their bench, you've Sinead Goldrick to come on which is a massive plus for them as well."

She added that the fact both semi-finals are taking place at Croke Park will be a boost for the game.

"It's great to see Ladies football getting the stage that they deserve being at headquarters and it will really have an impact on the game and on these four teams over the weekend," Morgan said.
