Should a player have to choose which All Ireland semi final?   05/08/2019


Tipperary LGFA Calls For Improved Communication between the LGFA and Camogie Associations

Tipperary LGFA would like to appeal to the LGFA and Camogie Association to work together to avoid placing dual players such as Orla O’Dwyer in a situation where they have to choose between playing in her TG4 Intermediate All Ireland Semi- final or her All Ireland Camogie Semi-final as both games have been fixed for August 17th next. This situation has occurred previously and is in direct contravention of the the current mantra 20X20 Women in Sport. If she can’t see it she can’t be it, being proffered by both organisations.


Tipperary LGFA highlighted this possibility to the LGFA on the 22nd January 2019 and feel that seven months notice is sufficient to request that this fixture be amended to allow Orla compete in both All Ireland Semi-finals.


Our Intermediate management team are constantly liaising with our camogie counterparts and feel that better planning and communication has to exist for these problems to be alleviated.


We are aware there are broadcasting issues but seven months noticed is sufficient to be able to find a solution.

We have been in contact with our Sligo Counterparts who are open to discussing a change to the fixture date with a possibility of a curtain raiser to the Senior All Ireland Semi Finals in Croke Park being a winning outcome for all.
