IT’S BEEN CONFIRMED this afternoon that Dublin’s TG4 All-Ireland Ladies senior football semi-final against Armagh will be played at Parnell Park in the capital on Saturday.

The Sky Blue ladies had agitated for a slot on the Dublin-Mayo replay undercard but they will be playing instead in Donnycarney.

The original throw-in time for the ladies fixture was 5pm, clashing directly with the Dublin-Mayo men’s clash at Croke Park.

That led to intense behind the scenes lobbying to have the ladies fixture included as part of the package at GAA HQ but those appeals fell on deaf ears.

Instead, Dublin’s ladies will throw-in against the Orchard County at 2pm, leaving supporters hoping to make both games with a frantic dash to make it on time to Croke Park for 5pm.

The intermediate semi-final involving Leinster rivals Offaly and Kildare will have a 12.15pm start at Parnell Park.

Both ladies semi-finals will be broadcast live on TG4.

There are also two All-Ireland ladies junior football semi-finals down for decision on Sunday afternoon.

Lancashire face Louth at 1pm in Fingallians before Derry take on Scotland at 2.45pm for a place in the 27 September decider.
