THE OFFALY LADIES football senior county final has been moved back by six days to avoid a clash with senior camogie semi-finals.

Concerns were raised when the female football decider between Naomh Ciaran and Tullamore was scheduled for Sunday week (2 October), the day after 11 players from the clubs were due to play in camogie senior A and B semi-finals. 

An initial request by Tullamore for the game to be put back by a week was turned down.

However, following an Offaly LGFA county board executive meeting on Thursday night, the decision was made to re-fix the final to Saturday, 8 October. 

In a correspondence to clubs this evening, Offaly LGFA confirmed the decision. 

The Offaly champions are due to begin their Leinster campaign on 22 October.
