The full list of Dublin Senior, Minor, U14 and U16 Ladies Football Fixtures 2019 has been released with the new season due to get underway in just over three weeks.
Dublin Senior Ladies Football Fixtures:
The Dublin Senior Ladies get the defence of their Division 1 league title underway on the 2nd of February with a home tie against Donegal although the date of that fixture is to be confirmed and may take place on the 3rd of February.
That game will be followed by an away trip to face newly promoted Tipperary on the 10th of February. Two weeks later on the 23rd of February Dublin will host Mayo with that game set to take place in Croke Park at 5pm.
Two more home fixtures will follow against Westmeath on the 3rd of March and Monaghan on the 16th of March.
For the final two rounds of Division 1 Dublin will make the long trips to play Galway on the 24th of March and old rivals Cork on the 7th of April.
The Lidl National Ladies Football League semi finals are set for 20th and 21st of April and the Finals will take place on the 5th of May.
Reaching the final will be important for Dublin not only as it gives them the chance to cement their position as the top team in the country by claiming back to back titles but with only two senior teams competing in the Leinster Championship they go straight into the Leinster Final against Westmeath on the 30th of June.
That will leave Mick Bohan’s side if they make the league final without a competitive game for seven weeks, failure to make the league final or worse still the semi finals would see Dublin without a meaningful game for 3 whole months.
Dublin’s quest for a third All Ireland title in a row begins on the 12th/13th/14th of July with round 1 of the group stages, round 2 is down for the 19th/20th of July with the final round of group games taking place on the 26th/27th/28th of July.
The dates for the TG4 All Ireland Championship quarter finals are the 2nd/3rd/4th/5th/10th/11th of August with the semi finals taking place on the 24th/25th of August.
The inter-county season will end with the All Ireland Finals in Croke Park on the 15th of September.
