LGFA Statement re Potential Fixture Clashes

LGFA Statement re Potential Fixture Clashes


The Ladies Gaelic Football Association and the Camogie Association have been in consultation regarding potential fixture clashes between the championship fixtures of both associations.


As a result of this consultation the LGFA have agreed to rearrange the following fixture to accommodate the All Ireland Camogie Championship Quarter Finals:


In the event of the Clare Camogie team qualifying for the All Ireland Quarter Final fixed for Saturday, August 1st the TG4 All Ireland Intermediate Qualifier between Clare and Limerick scheduled for the same date will instead be played on Friday, July 31st at a Clare venue. Should Clare fail to qualify for the All Ireland Camogie Quarter Finals the TG4 Intermediate Qualifier will go ahead as fixed for Saturday, August 1st.


The potential clash of fixtures involving the Cork Ladies Footballers and Cork Camogie team on August 15th was also discussed. The Cork Ladies Footballers must first play Meath before any clash arises. Regardless of whether it is Cork or Meath that do play that fixture on August 15th it is one that TG4 will be broadcasting live on the day.


The LGFA have a responsibility to our sponsors, broadcasters and the nearly 100 players affected by this fixture to give clarity regarding fixtures allowing counties and their management teams to plan their season as far in advance as possible. This is why the LGFA championship fixtures are agreed upon and released as early as November the previous year, it is impractical and unworkable to attempt to plan a fixture list based on possible clashes between different codes that may never arise.


The TG4 All Ireland Quarter Final fixed for August 15th between Galway and Cork/Meath will be going ahead on that day but the fixture will be played at 6pm to allow as much time as possible between camogie and ladies football fixtures.


The LGFA and Camogie Associations enjoy a very open and cordial relationship that allows for discussion and movement on either side as is the case with the Intermediate fixtures involving Clare, however, on occasion there are situations where clashes are unavoidable.
