TV Deal Expected for International Rules Series

TV Deal Expected for International Rules Series

THE TG4 O’Neill’s Ladies Football All-Stars kick-started
the St Patrick’s Day celebrations early with a special outdoor
function held by the Irish ambassador to Singapore in the country
last night. The touring party was delayed three hours at Amsterdam
yesterday, but dashed almost straight from Singapore airport to
the ambassador’s function in the city centre on arrival at
6.30pm local time.

The reception was held in over 25 degree heat and lasted well
into the small hours as a part of Singapore was turned green,
white and orange by the All Stars. However, the girls will be
put through their paces at a training session today in preparation
for tomorrow’s All-Star match at the Polo Grounds in Singapore

Among the traveling party who made the dash immediately from
airport to the reception were Mayo’s Cora Staunton, Cork’s
Valerie Mulcahy and Galway’s Lorna Joyce. “It was a
big rush alright and it was looking ominous there for a while
whether or not we’d make the ambassador’s reception
but thankfully it all worked out in the end,” said Ladies
Football Association Chief Helen O’Rourke.

Senior officials from TG4 have also travelled with the touring
party for talks regarding a Ladies International Rules between
Ireland and Australia. If both parties can strike a deal, it’s
hoped that TG4 will screen the games live from Ireland this October.
The talks will take place over the coming days with an announcement
expected before the All Stars return home next Wednesday.
