TG4 and LGFA announce bumper championship TV schedule


Share this article


TG4 have revealed their plans to screen 19 fixtures from this year's senior women's senior and intermediate championships, starting from July 14 until All-Ireland final day on Sunday, September 16.

There will be eight weekends of live action from a revamped championship, building up the big day at Croke Park when the TG4 All-Ireland junior, intermediate and senior champions will be crowned.

"We are pleased to reveal another big summer of championship action live on TG4 but finding suitable times for our televised fixtures proved extremely challenging," commented Ladies Gaelic Football Association CEO Helen O’Rourke.

"Due to the GAA’s new fixtures schedule, we felt restricted to a large degree and we had to work extremely hard to find suitable broadcast times in conjunction with our championship sponsors, TG4."

The LGFA and TG4 have also unveiled a new logo bearing the words ‘Peil na mBan’ to mark Bliain na Gaeilge.

In addition, the LGFA Official Guide is now available ‘as Gaeilge’ while an activity day at Croke Park on April 2 will involve underage teams from Gaeltacht clubs.

TG4 Director General, Alan Esslemont said: "This is Bliain na Gaeilge and TG4 is delighted that the LGFA is substantially increasing the profile of the Irish language throughout the association.

"Through our very successful partnership with LGFA and Lidl, TG4 is extremely proud that we can help to give women’s football the prominence it deserves.

"The #properfan campaign has contributed to a surge in interest in the games and the stunning success of last year’s LGFA Championship has brought a very welcome focus onto all women’s sports throughout Ireland."
