LGFA and Minor fixtures confirmed

The GAA are still resolutely refusing to show their hand on when and where the Round 3 fixtures in the All-Ireland SFC group stage will be played but the dates for our two LGFA All-Ireland SFC group stage matches were confirmed yesterday and so too today were details of our Minor All-Ireland quarter-final against Monaghan.

In the LGFA Championship we’re in Group 1 alongside Armagh – who surprisingly lost the Ulster final to Donegal, a game in which their star player Aimee Mackin left the field injured – and Cavan.

The two Ulster teams meet in Round 1 on 17th June and then a week later, on Sunday 25th June, we’re away to Armagh. Throw-in for this game is 3.30pm but a venue hasn’t been confirmed for it as yet. This match will be televised by TG4.

Our Round 3 match against Cavan is a home game and the venue for this one hasn’t been confirmed either but the game has been fixed for Saturday 1st July with a 2pm throw-in. This game will be streamed live by the LGFA.

The Minors, meanwhile, are heading back to Páirc Seán MacDiarmada, a venue they’ve already played in during the group stage of the Connacht Championship. The Carrick-on-Shannon venue is where Seán Deane’s charges will take on Monaghan, penalty shootout losers to Derry in the Ulster final, in the All-Ireland MFC quarter-final.

The game is fixed for Saturday week, 10th June, and throw-in is 5.15pm. Our match forms part of an attractive All-Ireland MFC double-header at Páirc Seán that day, with Derry taking on Galway beforehand at 3.30pm.

  1. I think it fair to say Willie Joe that your as browned off as me with the silence from the Gaa on our game v Cork. Its a nightmare for.weekend workers trying to organise time off when we’ve no idea when and where it is.

  2. I reckon the reason we’re not being told round 3 details is they’re waiting for round 2 to see what juicy fixtures it will throw up and then they can grab more for those games on rte and more importantly for them on gaago.

  3. Maybe wrong thread for my previous post i didn’t mean to belittle minors or ladies teams. Good luck to both teams and I feel they have a great chance of success or at least a great run in both competitions.

  4. So Armagh lose the Ulster final but get a home game against the Top Seed/Provincial Winner in their group. What’s the point of even winning a provincial championship if this happens.

  5. Delighted the minor match is being played in Carrick. It’s a lovely compact pitch.Traffic congestion will be a problem but should be worth it if we see two good games.As for the Mayo v Cork encounter it’s scheduled for Saturday June 17. The venue will probably be Limerick or Ennis depending on expected capacity needs.

  6. That’s according to RTE fixture list but reading elsewhere it will be on Saturday or Sunday, June 17 or 18.
