GAA: Right Dubbing; All-Ireland Women's Football Final BOSS: WOMEN DESERVE RESPECT DUBLIN V GALWAY Croke Park, 3.10pm


Byline: PAUL KEANE

KING of the Hill John O'Leary has launched a scathing broadside at Dublin's stayaway fans ahead of today's All-Ireland women's football Final at Croke Park.

O'Leary has defied logic by leading his inherited ladies team to an All-Ireland decider in his first season as boss.

The intense efforts of the 1995 All-Ireland winning skipper haven't been reciprocated in the numbers turning out on the terraces though.

Dublin face Galway today and after last year's narrow loss to Mayo they've never been better placed to lift their first All-Ireland title.

But O'Leary blasted the county's football folk whose moral support has been sorely lacking against the likes of Donegal and Kerry thus far.

O'Leary slammed: "The Dublin ladies have earned the respect of the county and frankly the supporters should be giving them that respect. This is a Dublin team playing in an All-Ireland final. The whole county should come out and support them.

"It doesn't matter whether they're men or women, it's all Dublin football. They both wear the same crest on their jerseys."

Back in 1995 when keeping legend O'Leary lifted the Sam Maguire for the last time in the capital a sizeable chunk of the 65,983 supporters sang the Blues on Hill 16.

He hopes the fans will finally show their true colours today after disappointing turnouts against Donegal and Kerry in the quarter and semi-finals.

O'Leary added: "This team really plays for the jersey when they're out on the pitch and that's something I know Dublin fans would appreciate if they watched them. They're a great bunch to deal with, even easier than the fellas. There's never TEUR4 TV 3.10pm any cribbing over turning up for training or anything. With the fellas you get used to the different excuses but the women are a dream to work with."

It's another turn in the colourful career of O'Leary. He was the last Dublin skipper to land an All-Ireland men's title and nine years on could be the first ladies manager to land them an All-Ireland. …
