2024 TG4 All-Ireland Finals tickets

TG4 All Ireland Ladies Football finals to be played on October 7th

As a result of yesterday’s All Ireland Hurling final draw, the TG4 All Ireland ladies football finals will now take place in Croke Park on October 7th to facilitate the replay of the All Ireland Hurling Final. This is as part of a long standing agreement between the LGFA and the GAA. The alternative date for the ladies final was agreed and entered into the GAA’s master-plan last December.

 

In recent times the ladies finals have moved twice to facilitate All Ireland final replays in 1996 and 2000 when the football finals finished in draws. Prior to yesterday the All Ireland hurling final hadn’t ended in a draw since 1959. The LGFA chooses to have our final on September the 30th, on the date of the potential hurling replay, as drawn hurling finals are very rare.

 

Speaking about the change of fixture the CEO of the LGFA, Helen O’Rourke, said ‘We have always known that in the event of a replay in the hurling final that our football finals would move to October 7th. We choose to have our finals on September 30th to maintain the momentum that is generated by the men’s finals. This is ‘peak season’ for interest in Gaelic games. We will work with the GAA and TG4 to ensure that the finals on October 7th are a success and that as small a number of people as possible are affected by the change.’
