The Ladies Gaelic Football Association and Championship sponsors, TG4, are delighted to confirm a bumper schedule of Spring fixtures – All-Ireland Senior Club Final and seven key games in the forthcoming Lidl National Leagues.
TG4’s 2022 live coverage of Ladies Football gets underway on Saturday, January 29, when holders Mourneabbey from Cork and Galway’s Kilkerrin-Clonberne clash at St Brendan’s Park in Birr in what promises to be a mouth-watering currentaccount.ie All-Ireland Senior Club Final (1pm).
This tie is a repeat of the thrilling 2019 Final between the sides and on that occasion, the TG4 cameras were also present at the TUS Gaelic Grounds in Limerick to capture a one-point victory for Mourneabbey.
Following the conclusion of the Club Championships, with the LGFA set to live-stream the Junior and Intermediate Finals on February 5/6, attention quickly turns to the commencement of the 2022 Lidl National Leagues.
The live TV action gets underway on Saturday, February 12, when Donegal host Galway under lights in Ballybofey (7.30pm).
TG4 will screen a live game from each of the three rounds of group fixtures, with the Dublin v Cork tie at Croke Park on Saturday, February 19, forming part of a double-header with the Dublin v Mayo men’s fixture.
Dublin and Cork will meet for the first time in a competitive fixture since the 2021 Lidl National League Division 1 Final at Croke Park, which was won by champions Dublin.
The latest instalment of a keen recent rivalry will get underway at 5.15pm, before the live Round 3 clash on Saturday March 5 features Meath against Dublin in a meeting that will revive memories of the 2021 TG4 All-Ireland Senior Final between the counties.
Meath famously ran out winners on that occasion and the Royal County, who also won the Lidl NFL Division 2 title last year to gain promotion to the top flight, will have home advantage at Páirc Tailteann in Navan, for a 3pm start.
TG4 will then provide live coverage of the Lidl NFL Division 1 semi-finals on Saturday, March 19, with those games confirmed for 1pm and 3pm.
TG4’s coverage of the Lidl National Leagues concludes on Sunday, April 10, with the Finals in Divisions 1 and 2, which will be played as a double-header at Croke Park.
The Division 2 Final will throw in at 2pm, followed by the Division 1 decider at 4pm.
Peil na mBan Beo will be available to audiences globally on the TG4 Player at www.tg4.ie/beo and on the TG4 Mobile and Smart TV App.
Former Galway star Máire Ní Bhraonáin will lead TG4’s Peil na mBan Beo coverage once again for the forthcoming season. The commentary team will be headed up by Brian Tyers.
They will be joined by expert panellists including ex-Waterford star and Underdogs selector, Michelle Ryan, Dublin’s All-Ireland winners Sinéad Finnegan and Sorcha Furlong, Meath ace Vikki Wall, a 2021 All-Ireland Senior winner, All Star and Senior Player’s Player of the Year, and Donegal’s Emer Gallagher.
TG4’s coverage will be produced by Waterford-based production company, Nemeton TV.
