Club Finals Set For Lights at Parnell park

Parnell Park in Dublin is to host this year’s All Ireland Club Ladies Football Finals with TG4 showing the senior and Intermediate deciders live.

The floodlights will be on when Mourneabbey look to defend their title against Galway’s Kilkerrin-Clonberne who are in the final for the first time.

All Ireland winners Noelle Healy, Doireann and Ciara O’Sullivan are in the Cork sides line up while four of the team that lined out for Galway in this year’s All Ireland Final will be facing them.

The players will at least have a week to recover from any celebrations arising out of Saturday night’s TG4 All-Stars taking place at CityWest.

The broadcaster will have a Red Carpet Live show from the awards on its facebook channel from 1830 on Saturday and will have highlights show on Sunday, November 24th.

The Club Championships remains an outlier as one of the few properties around the surging support for Women’s sport that remains without a headline sponsor.

County Champions are generally decided by September leading into provincial Championships and the All Ireland series running across October and November.

AIB have been 30 years as sponsors of the Club Championships in Gaelic Football and added Camogie in recent years as well.

All three of those follow a similar timeline which is a little beyond the Ladies Football finals but with their moving to January and potentially coming back into the calendar year from next year, there could yet be an opportunity to wrap all four under the same flag.

If not it would be a great opportunity to secure meaningful impact at a time of year when almost all the GAA attention is focused on the club game.
