Ladies Football Association opt for split season

Share this article

The Ladies Football Association has opted for a split season this year and players will receive travel expenses during the upcoming league.

Their management committee has approved a plan which will see the All-Ireland Championships played after the National League.

The club season will commence later in the year with county boards encouraged to run their local competitions once their inter-county team exit the Championship.

With the condensed campaign, the provincial competitions will not form part of this year's inter-county Championship - though they could be played as stand along competitions later in the year.

An announcement on the fixtures plan is expected to be released early next week.

Players are also set to receive match-day travel expenses of 30 cent per mile when the League gets underway later this month.

Meanwhile the Gaelic Players' Association say they're seeking clarity from the Camogie Association about their plans for the upcoming season.

It's understood that camogie's governing body are planning to play the national league, then the club campaign before the inter-county championship in the Autumn.
