Celebrating TG4′s 20th year as the competition’s sponsor, Peil na mBan Beo is being presented by ex-Galway footballer Máire Ní Bhraonáin for the first time.

She will be joined by a legendary team of analysts in Cork great Rena Buckley, Dublin’s Sorcha Furlong and the recently-retired Michelle Ryan of Waterford.

There is silverware on offer in the Brendan Martin (Senior) Cup, the Mary Quinn Memorial Cup (Intermediate), and the West County Hotel (Junior) Cup, and the action gets underway at Kingspan Breffni Park on Friday, when Tyrone clash with Armagh under lights.

You’ll also be glad to learn that the three deciders are being shown by TG4. The West County Hotel Cup final takes place on Saturday, 5 December, before the Mary Quinn Memorial Cup and the Brendan Martin Cup finals make up a double-header at Croke Park on Sunday, 20 December.
