THE draws for the 2021 TG4 All-Ireland Ladies Football Championships will be broadcast live on the TG4 and LGFA Facebook pages on Thursday evening.
Máire Ní Bhraonáin, the lead anchor of TG4’s Peil na mBan coverage, will present the live event, while LGFA President, Mícheál Naughton, and Ard Stiúrthóir TG4, Alan Esslemont, will conduct the draws at Ceannáras TG4 in Baile na hAbhann, Co. Galway.
In the Senior and Intermediate Championships, the top two teams in each group of three or four teams will progress to the quarter-finals, which are returning this year.
Dublin, Armagh, Cork and Galway are seeded in the Senior Championship.
In the Intermediate Championship, there are three seeded teams – 2020 Champions Meath will operate in the Senior grade for the 2021 campaign, which leaves last year’s runners-up Westmeath, and defeated semi-finalists Clare and Roscommon, as the seeded teams.
A draw will not be required for the 2021 TG4 All-Ireland Junior Championship – with four counties to emerge from a group of five to contest the semi-finals.
Once the draws have been conducted, fixtures and venues will be agreed, with the competitions set to commence on the weekend of July 10/11.
