Lidl NFL Division 1 holders and TG4 All-Ireland Senior Champions Dublin will play two fixtures in front of the eir sport cameras at Croke Park, while Cork have two games alongside their male counterparts at Páirc Uí Chaoimh, including an historic first-ever appearance at the Leeside venue against Tipperary on Saturday, February 23rd.

In addition, Tipperary have a home clash with Monaghan in Division 1 at Semple Stadium in Thurles on the same day.
