Mayo captain urges Staunton to play on


Mayo captain Sarah Tierney hopes Cora Staunton stays on for a 24th season of inter-county football in 2018.

Staunton, who turns 36 in December, cut a disconsolate figure at the end of Mayo's 4-11 to 0-11 All-Ireland ladies' final defeat to Dublin at Croke Park on Sunday, but Tierney hopes the Carnacon forward and fellow four-time All-Ireland winners Martha Carter and Yvonne Byrne will stay on for another crack at the Brendan Martin Cup.

"I'd love to see Cora stay on," Tierney told RTE Sport. 

"She comes in a package with Martha and Yvonne, I’m not really sure what the girls will do.

 "They've given Mayo football 20-23 years of  their lives already and it’s a huge commitment, week-in, week out. We'll just have to wait and see.

 "We lost to Dublin in Cavan last year by a point and I kind of knew they'd come back. We've gone one step closer this year, got to a final and I'd love to see one more year in them.

"But it's their decision and I won't be putting pressure on them."
