Reigning champions Dublin will face Donegal and Waterford in the opening phase of this year's TG4 All Ireland Ladies Football Championship. 

In a revised competition as a result of COVID-19, the senior championship is split into four groups of three.

The top team in each group will progress to the All Ireland semi-finals.

Last year's runners-up Galway were drawn in Group 2 alongside Tipperary and Monaghan.

Cork's quest for a first title in four years will begin in Group 1 alongside Cavan and Munster rivals Kerry.

While Mayo have been drawn in Group 4 alongside Armagh and Tyrone.

It's hoped that the championships can be run off inside a seven-week spell.

In the Intermediate Championship, Westmeath will hope for a swift return to the senior ranks following relegation last year.

The Lake County find themselves in an all-Leinster Group 2 alongside Longford and Louth, who were Junior Champions last year.

Meath, beaten Intermediate finalists in 2018 and 2019, will battle it out with Leitrim and Down in Group 3, while Group 1 is made up of Roscommon, beaten semi-finalists in 2019, and Leinster counties Offaly and Wexford.

With 13 teams involved in the Intermediate Championship, Group 4 is a group made up of four counties, namely Sligo, Clare, Kildare and Laois.

An open draw determined the make-up of the two groups of three teams for the Junior Championship round-robin phase.

Group 1 contains 2019 runners-up Fermanagh, alongside Carlow and Wicklow, while Derry, Limerick and Antrim have been pitted together in Group 2.
