Dublin’s Amy Connolly and Mayo’s Niamh Kelly were joined by Melissa Duggan of Cork and Aislinn Desmond of Kerry to make today’s announcement. The action gets underway on Saturday, 10th February, as Dublin face off against Cork in a repeat of the All-Ireland Ladies Football Finals of 2014, 2015 and 2016.  

LGFA CEO Helen O’Rourke commented: “We are delighted that eir sport are screening these high-profile fixtures. Behind the scenes, we have worked incredibly hard to ensure ‘double-headers’ alongside our male counterparts, which will enable our players to showcase their talents at top-quality venues such as Croke Park and Elvery’s MacHale Park. We look forward to eir sport’s coverage and for viewers, it’s a fantastic opportunity to tune in and watch the cream of our inter-county talent in action.” 

Speaking at the announcement, Glen Killane, Managing Director of eir TV and sport commented: “We are absolutely thrilled to add these outstanding fixtures from the Lidl Ladies National League to the overall GAA content offering available on eir sport. We have seen the incredible heights Ladies Football has soared to over the past number of years, and the appetite there is amongst GAA lovers to follow the action which means there is a responsibility on us to deliver that content.

“The addition of these games aligns with our mission at eir sport to offer Irish sports fans the very best GAA content. Ladies Football action along with our extensive Allianz Leagues coverage, our recent successful Club Championship coverage, GAA online clip rights and archive rights means eir sport is establishing itself as the key destination for GAA in Ireland.”
