Onto Saturday and there’s a good mix of Ladies Football and Camogie. Dublin’s U16 Ladies Football Panel will kick off their Leinster Championship with a road trip to Kildare. The start of this competition got put on hold during the recent bad weather so the girls are ready to go. Venue and throw in time to be confirmed later.
The Dublin Minor Camogie panel will play out their final round game in this year’s All Ireland Championship with an away trip to Galway. The team haven;t looked back since their opening day loss to Cork and have beaten both Wexford and Kilkenny. Galway have lost two of their three games so far so there’s vital points up for grabs in this one. Venue and Throw in time again to be confirmed.

Mick Bohan’s Senior Ladies Football panel will make the trip up north to the Farney County to face Monaghan in Round 7 of the Lidl National League.
