LGFA and TG4 announce summer schedule and special activities to mark Bliain na Gaeilge

THE Ladies Gaelic Football Association and championship sponsors TG4 have announced details of their 2018 summer TV schedule.

TG4 will screen 19 fixtures covering the senior and intermediate championships, beginning on Saturday, July 14 and running until All-Ireland final day on Sunday, September 16.

Over the course of eight weekends, TG4 will bring you the very best action from a revamped championship, culminating at Croke Park when the TG4 All-Ireland junior, intermediate and senior champions will be crowned.

In a further development, 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.

Lá Náisiúnta Blitz na gClub Gaeltachta 2018 will see U12 girls from all over Ireland gather at Croke Park to pit their wits against each other and mingle with some of Ladies football’s leading stars.

Ladies Gaelic Football Association CEO Helen O’Rourke commented: “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.

“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.

“However, we are hugely enthused by Bliain na Gaeilge and the ongoing celebrations are very important to us.

“Our members can now also view our Official Guide in the Irish language while the addition of ‘Peil na mBan’ to our existing logo recognises Bliain na Gaeilge.

“I’m really looking forward to the activity day at Croke Park next month, which is a unique event and will celebrate the Irish language through the medium of the game that we all love.”

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.”

TÁ áthas ar Chumann Pheil na mBan agus ar TG4, urraitheoirí an chraobhchomórtais, sceideal craolta teilifíse shamhradh 2018 a fhógairt.

Craolfaidh TG4 19 gcluiche ó chraobhchomórtas na sinsear & ón gcraobhchomórtas idirmheánach, ag tosú an Satharn an 19 Iúil amach go dtí Cluiche Ceannais na hÉireann an Domhnach an 16 Meán Fómhair.

Thar ocht ndeireadh seachtaine, taispeánfaidh TG4 scoth an aicsin ó chraobhchomórtas atá atheagraithe, leis an mbuaicphointe i bPáirc an Chrócaigh nuair a bhronnfar Corn Uile Éireann TG4 ar na seaimpíní sóisear, idirmheánacha & sinsear.

Athrú eile chun cinn go bhfuil lógó nua eisithe ag LGFA & TG4 leis na focail ‘Peil na mBan’, mar aitheantas ar Bhliain na Gaeilge.

Sa bhreis air sin, tá leagan Gaeilge de Threoirleabhar Oifigiúil an LGFA ar fáil anois i nGaeilge agus reáchtálfar lá gníomhaíochta i bPáirc an Chrócaigh an 2 Aibreán, ina mbeidh foirne faoi aois as ceantair ar fud na Gaeltachta páirteach ann.

Tabharfaidh Lá Náisiúnta Blitz na gClubanna Gaeltachta 2018 deis do chailíní Faoi 12 ó gach áit in Éirinn teacht le chéile le dul in iomaíocht lena chéile agus casfaidh siad chomh maith le cuid de na réaltaí is mó i bPeil na mBan.

The Ladies Gaelic Football Association and championship sponsors TG4 have announced details of their 2018 summer schedule. TG4 will screen 19 fixtures covering the senior and intermediate championships, while special activities to mark Bliain na Gaeilge were also confirmed.

Deir Helen O’Rourke Príomhfheidhmeannach Chumann Pheil na mBan: “Tá muid sásta samhradh mór eile d’aicsean beo ar TG4 sa gcraobhchomórtas a fhógairt ach bhí dúshlán mór ag baint le hamanna feiliúnacha a fháil chun na cluichí a chraoladh.

“De bharr sceideal nua cluichí CLG bhí muid srianta go mór agus bhí orainn oibriú go dian chun teacht ar amanna craolta i gcomhpháirt le TG4, urraitheoirí an chraobhchomórtais.

“Tá muid ar bís, áfach, faoi Bhliain na Gaeilge agus tá an ceiliúradh leanúnach a bhaineann léi thar a bheith tábhachtach dúinn.

“Tá ár dTreoirleabhar Oifigiúil le fáil i nGaeilge anois ag ár mbaill agus is mar aitheantas ar Bhliain na Gaeilge a cuireadh ‘Peil na mBan’ leis an lógó reatha atá againn.

“Tá mé ag súil leis an lá gníomhaíochta i bPáirc an Chrócaigh an mhí seo chugainn, ócáid faoi leith a dhéanfaidh ceiliúradh ar ár dteanga náisiúnta trí mheán an chluiche a bhfuil gean ár gcroí againn air.”

Deir Ardstiúrthóir TG4, Alan Esslemont: “Seo í Bliain na Gaeilge agus tá ríméad ar TG4 go bhfuil an LGFA ag ardú phróifíl na Gaeilge ar fud an chumainn. Tá TG4 iontach bródúil go bhfuil muid ábalta an t-aitheantas is dual di a thabhairt do Pheil na mBan agus sin á dhéanamh againn mar chuid dár gcomhpháirtíocht rathúil leis an LGFA & Lidl. Chuidigh an feachtas #properfan le borradh mór a chur sa tsuim atá sna cluichí agus tharraing sár-chaighdeán chraobhchomórtais na bliana seo caite aird ar spóirt na mban trí chéile ar fud na hÉireann.”
