DUBLIN AND MAYO will meet in the first-ever Ladies National Football League match at Croke Park this Saturday, with their round six clash acting as a curtain-raiser for the Allianz League game between Dublin and Roscommon.

It will be the first time GAA HQ has staged a ladies football fixture with the game between last year’s All-Ireland semi-finalists throwing in at 5pm.

Mick Bohan’s Dublin have won three of their five outings in the league campaign to date, while Mayo are languishing down in seventh with just one win from four games.

“The Ladies Gaelic Football Association would like to thank the GAA, Croke Park, Dublin GAA and our sponsors, Lidl, for their co-operation in making this fixture possible,” the LGFA said in a statement.

Tickets for the double-header are priced at just €15 for adults and €5 for children.

The men’s game between Jim Gavin’s Dublin and Roscommon starts at 7pm.
