  1. No lie-ins for the ladies this weekend. I wonder if the men would put up with this kind of timing.Some cracking fixtures but at that time on a Sunday morning I’d say fans will be thin on the ground.

  2. A lot of the senior ladies footballers are in third level and prefer the early game to allow time in afternoon to get things organised for returning to college. I am sure some of the senior ladies would slso be supporting their men’s teams on Sunday afternoon in the county championship. I think most girls are happy to play the game early and free up the rest of the day. In terms of support for ladies games – it’s the same small few people that will turn up regardless of the time the game is on.

  3. JoeG, for now they have to take what can get. It’s either early or later, and earlier generally suits best as southmayoexile says.
    They don’t have their own pitches bar Swinford really, so relying on generosity of GAA so to speak.
    When integration takes place it will be only way this changes.
