EAMONN Ryan's TG4 All-Ireland ladies senior football champions, Cork, will face Armagh in the last four of this year's competition.

The semi-final pairings were confirmed on Saturday after Dublin and Galway, champions in Leinster and Connacht respectively, advanced to the last four. With the race for the Brendan Martin Cup reaching a gripping conclusion, the semi-finals will be contested by the four provincial winners.

Cork face off against Armagh in a repeat of last year's qualifier, which the Rebelettes won narrowly by a point. And Dublin will face Galway in the other semi-final, after both teams won their quarter-finals at St Brendan's Park, Birr, on Saturday.

Galway edged past last year's beaten finalists, Monaghan, by three points, 0-17 to 0-14, with 10 different players getting on the scoresheet.

Galway led by 0-7 to 0-6 at half-time, but the introduction of Caoimhe Mohan provided Monaghan with fresh impetus and the Westerners suffered a major injury blow when captain Sinead Burke limped off with an ankle problem. The sides were level at 0-10 apiece, but Galway finished strongly to win.

Meanwhile, goals in either half from Niamh McEvoy and Noelle Healy proved crucial for Dublin as they ensured that Kerry lost. Sinead Aherne scored 0-8, as they ran out 2-12 to 1-10 winners.

McEvoy's goal ensured a 1-9 to 0-3 half-time advantage. Kerry launched a revival after the restart, but Healy's goal put Dublin firmly in control. The Kingdom scored a consolation goal through Deirdre Corridan.
