Teams Named for TG4 All Ireland Semi Finals


The first of this year’s TG4 All Ireland Semi Finals take place this weekend at the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick when Waterford take on Leitrim in the Intermediate semi final followed by the much anticipated meeting of Cork and Kerry in the TG4 Senior All Ireland Semi Final.

6 July 2015; Pictured at the launch of the TG4 Ladies All Ireland Football Championship are Ciara O'Sullivan, Cork, and Cait Lynch, Kerry. The championship, which begins with the first matches on July 25th will culminate with the TG4 All Ireland Finals in Croke Park on September 27th. Cork will hope to win tenth third All Ireland title in 11 years but will face the highest level of competition in years. All supporters of the sport are being asked to support the championship, to Be the Difference, Be There #BetheDiff. Croke Park, Dublin. Picture credit: Piaras Ó Mídheach / SPORTSFILE

Kerry show an unchanged team for their TG4 All Ireland semi final show down with Cork although there are positional changes with Lorraine Scanlon moving to midfield with her full forward berth filled by Megan O’Connell. Emma Sherwook will start at wingforward as Sarah Houlihan moves to centre forward. The biggest news on the Kerry squad is the return of Louise Galvin who is named as a substitute after representing Ireland in international rugby sevens competition last weekend. Cork boss Eamonn Ryan has kept the faith with the same 15 that ground out a victory over Galway in their TG4 All Ireland Quarter Final meeting.

Waterford are also unchanged from the side that defeated Sligo in their Quarter Final and Leitrim have also stuck with the same side that accounted for Clare in their quarter final.
