On the 2nd of December 2006 the Mayo Senior Women’s Soccer team made history when they captured the Irish Senior cup by defeating a highly fancied UCD side in Richmond Park, in Dublin.

By becoming champions the Mayo team qualified to represent Ireland in the 2007 UEFA cup in August of this year.

They also get to defend the trophy and kick off the defence in Limerick on Sunday 22nd of July against the Limerick league at 3pm.

The 2007 UEFA Cup Competition Qualifying round is been held in Austria from August 9th to the 15th in Neulengbach near Vienna.

The 4 teams in Group A3 are Neulengbach (Austria), Klub Sportowy (Polond), Hibernian (Scotland), Mayo FC.(Irl)

Match days are the 9th, the 11th and the 14th of August.

The only burden on the Mayo Women’s Association is a financial one, and on that note the team would like to thank Michael Byrne for coming on board and sponsoring kit bags for the Mayo panel.

Michael joins our main sponsor, Texoil, as a contributor to the cost of financing our defence of the Senior cup and our trip to Europe.

Womens soccer within Mayo in its present format is still in its infancy, only some 7 years on the go, but already we hold the highest accolade in the Country, The Senior Cup. With the help of people like Michael Byrne we can continue to reach higher levels, and we intend to start that climb next Sunday in Limerick.

The Mayo Association Football League, The Mayo Schoolboys/Schoolgirls & Youths Association, The Connacht Schoolgirls Association, UEFA and the FAI, are also to be thanked for their assistance to date in promoting Women’s soccer within Mayo.
