The 2021 and 2022 TG4 All Stars are en route to Austin, Texas, for the 2023 TG4/LGFA All Star tour.  

38 of the game’s leading stars are making the trip to the US, with this tour rescheduled after it was postponed in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  

The local Celtic Cowboys will host the traditional exhibition game between the 2021 and 2022 All Star selections, which will be played at St Edward’s University on Easter Sunday, April 9.  

This game, which can be viewed at http://bit.ly/42YMFwN, will be live-streamed on the Spórt TG4 YouTube page, with coverage getting underway from 2.20pm local time (8.20pm Irish time), ahead of throw-in at 2.30pm local time (8.30pm Irish time).  

The 2021 selection will be managed by former Meath supremo Eamonn Murray, who guided the Royal County to TG4 All-Ireland Senior championship glory in 2021 and 2022, with Kerry joint-manager Darragh Long taking charge of the 2022 team.  

The match will be overseen by Cavan’s Maggie Farrelly, one of the most experienced whistlers on the circuit and referee for the 2014 and 2022 TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship Finals. 

This is the ninth All-Star tour for the LGFA and the travelling party left Dublin airport early this morning.  

Prior to departure, Ladies Gaelic Football Association President Mícheál Naughton said: “For many of our players, the prospect of a TG4 All Star tour is a once in a lifetime experience.  

“After the proposed 2020 tour was cancelled, we are delighted to now finally get the chance to visit Austin, Texas, and this trip is a brilliant reward for our players who have provided such wonderful football in recent times.  

The travelling party will return to Ireland on Tuesday April 12, with local school visits and river cruises also factored into a packed itinerary.
