LGFA announces 2020 Ladies National Football Leagues cancelled

The Ladies Gaelic Football Association (LGFA) have announced that the 2020 Lidl Ladies National Football Leagues have been cancelled and will not be completed due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

With five rounds already played and two more remaining across the four divisions, the LGFA, alongside the GAA and Camogie Association, halted all fixtures earlier this month.

The LGFA also confirmed that the 2020 TG4 All-Ireland Championships will be reviewed on an ongoing basis in line with Government regulations.

A statement from the LGFA read:

"In light of the Covid-19 outbreak, the prime concern for the Ladies Gaelic Football Association at the present time is the health and wellbeing of our members. 

"Consequently, a number of decision have been made in respect of LGFA competitions, which have not been taken lightly. The 2020 Lidl National Leagues have been cancelled for 2020, and will not be completed. 

"The Lidl Post Primary Schools Competitions have also been cancelled for 2020, along with the LGFA Interprovincial Competition, the All-Ireland U14 Championship, Féile na nÓg and Féile Skills.

"The 2020 TG4 All-Ireland Championships will be reviewed on an ongoing basis, in line with Government regulations, while there is a possibility of provincial action in the U16 and Minor Championships, when LGFA activities resume.  A number of Development programmes are also postponed until LGFA activity resumes."
