THE LADIES GAELIC Football Association have confirmed they have approached the GAA about playing their All-Ireland senior semi-final as a curtain raiser to Dublin and Mayo’s replay at Croke Park on Saturday.

The pair will take to Croke Park on Saturday September 5 at 5pm, which was set to clash with the Dublin ladies footballers, who are also due to be in All-Ireland semi-final action against Armagh in Parnell Park with the same throw-in time.

The Ladies Gaelic Football Association confirmed on Twitter that they approached the GAA about including their senior semi-final as a curtain-raiser next Saturday, but that their request was turned down.

They say the GAA cite the following day’s All-Ireland hurling finals as reasons not to play extra games in Croke Park.

Due to the clash in throw-in times, they have confirmed that they will be changing the times of both the intermediate semi-final between Kildare and Offaly and the senior game between Dublin and Armagh, both of which are taking place in Parnell Park.

Dublin captain Lyndsey Davey let her feelings be known about the decision, and the Women’s Gaelic Players Association also called for the GAA to turn next Saturday’s game into a double-header.
