TG4 and Tyrone Productions to Produce Televised Celebration of LGFA All-Ireland Final
14 Sep 2018 : Nathan Griffin
The 90-minute programme will be presented by Gráinne McElwain and Dáithí Ó Sé and will be filmed in Dublin’s Mansion House.

The show will be broadcast on TG4 at 9:30pm on Saturday the 15th of September - the eve of this year’s Ladies Football Final matches. Over the course of the programme, panellists and audience members will reflect on this year’s championship, on the games that will be taking place the following day, on the lives of Irish sports stars and on the story of women in Irish society in 2018. 

There will be a variety of well-known faces present on the night; amongst them former Brendan Martin Cup winners and sporting legends such as former Irish Rugby Captain Fiona Coghlan, Paralympic Swimmer Ellen Keane, Former Cork Footballer Valerie Mulcahy and Irish Hockey Player and World Cup Finalist Nicci Daly. 

As well as personalities from the world of sport, the programme will feature women from the worlds of business, broadcasting, politics and music. ‘Seó Beo Pheil na mBan le Lidl’ will also meet with a number of LGFA players’ families as well as inter-county players not competing in the finals. On top of plenty of chat, the show will have a number of musical acts including Áine Cahill, John Spillane and Lucia Evans.

As well as conversation and music, viewers will get the opportunity to hear from this year’s senior finalists in the form of emotive video inserts that will explore the preparation and sacrifices involved in reaching an All-Ireland Final.

The LGFA announcement comes in the wake of Ladies Football’s surge in popularity. It is now the fastest growing sport in the country, breaking the attendance record in last year’s All-Ireland Finals in Croke Park with 46,286 people . This was the largest live crowd at an all-female sporting event in 2017. Furthermore 56,300 people watched the games live on TG4.

The Ladies All-Ireland Finals will be broadcast on TG4 on Sunday 16th September on ‘Peil na mBan Beo'. Live coverage of the TG4 All-Ireland Ladies Football Finals from Croke Park will include Dublin v Cork in the Senior Final (4pm), Tyrone v Meath in the Intermediate Final (1:45pm) and Louth v Limerick in the Junior Final (11:45am). The match day programme will be Presented by Gráinne McElwain with commentary by Brian Tyers.
