THE ULSTER DERBY meeting of Cavan and Armagh is this weekend’s live TV game in the TG4 All-Ireland senior ladies football championship.

The TG4 cameras will pitch up in St Tiernach’s Park, Clones, on Saturday evening for the decisive Group 1 clash [throw-in 5.30pm].

Last weekend, Armagh saw off Monaghan, while the Breffni county lost out to Mayo. With the top two from each group progressing to quarter-finals, the Orchard will be hoping to effectively seal their passage as Gerry Moane’s Cavan look to get off the mark.

Elsewhere in Group 1, Monaghan and Mayo do battle earlier on Saturday, with all of the games available to watch on the LGFA and TG4’s dedicated viewing portal.

In Group 2, it’s the Munster derby of Tipperary v Cork, while Dublin’s Drive for Five continues against Waterford in Group 3. The 2020 All-Ireland finalists started with wins over Meath and Tyrone respectively last weekend.

And the final senior game of the weekend comes in Group 4 with Donegal and Galway going head-to-head in what should be an intriguing battle.

Injury-ravaged Tipperary — managed by All-Ireland hurling winner Declan Carr — and Maxi Curran’s Donegal both open their respective campaigns this weekend, while Gerry Fahy’s Galway will be looking to make it two wins on the bounce after their one-point victory over Kerry.

The intermediate and junior championships also continue this weekend, with the fixture list in full detailed below.
