Dublin And Cork To Battle It Out Again In The 2021 Lidl Ladies National Football League

TG4 All-Ireland Senior finalists Dublin and Cork have been pitted together in Division 1B of the 2021 Lidl Ladies National Football League, which is due to get underway on May 23.

Dublin defeated Cork last December to claim a fourth straight All-Ireland Senior crown – but Cork are the reigning Division 1 League champions, having won the title in 2019.

Cork and Dublin will be joined by Tipperary and Waterford in an ultra-competitive Division
1B, with Galway, Mayo, Donegal and Westmeath making up Division 1A.

In Division 2A, TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate champions Meath will be joined by Kerry,
Wexford and Clare, while Tyrone, Monaghan, Armagh and Cavan make up an all-Ulster
Division 2B.

There are four counties in each group, with the exception of a three-team Division 4B, which contains Carlow, Offaly and Limerick, with the divisions comprised in regional fashion to minimise travelling for the competing teams, and to help ensure the health and safety of all counties.

Three rounds of group fixtures will be played on consecutive weekends, with the semi-finals scheduled for June 13.

There will then follow a two-week break before the Lidl National League Finals are played on June 27.

Confirmation of initial details for the 2021 Lidl National Leagues follow the recent
Government announcement that inter-county training can resume from April 19, for
‘sanctioned and organised adult inter-county National Gaelic Games Leagues.’

The teams lining out in the 2021 Lidl National Leagues will have five weeks to prepare
before action gets underway, with fixtures to follow in due course.
