The Camogie Association has followed up last week’s draw for the 2020 Liberty Insurance All Ireland Championships by confirming that this year’s Senior All Ireland Final will take place at Croke Park on Saturday, December 12th.
That will be the day before the rescheduled All Ireland Hurling Championship and one week before what it is hoped will be a weekend doubleheader of Football Finals for Men and Women as well.
Due to the demands on the pitch in Croke Park in December this year with various fixtures across all codes due to take place at a time of year when natural grass growth will be limited, the Intermediate and Premier Junior Finals will not be possible to be played on the same day as has been the case in recent years.
In 2019 Galway Manager Cathal Murray took charge of both the Intermediate and the Senior teams playing back to back in All Ireland Finals at Croke Park.
Anyone looking to do similar again this year will at least be able to get a cup of tea and a nights sleep in between Finals so long as they are scheduled to take place at different locations on a different day.
The details of the playing of those two other finals will be made known in the coming weeks.
