History in the making as LGFA confirms Facebook Live Coverage of 2019 Lidl All-Ireland Post-Primary Schools ‘A’ Final

 

CAPTAINS from the competing teams in the 2019 Lidl All-Ireland Post Primary Schools Finals gathered at Croke Park today (TUES) ahead of six eagerly-anticipated games.

The Senior A Final will be contested by last year’s runners-up Loreto, Clonmel, from county Tipperary, and Scoil Chríost Rí from Portlaoise in county Laois, who were beaten semi-finalists last year.

In a twist of fate, this year’s Final is a repeat of the 2018 semi-final between Loreto and Scoil Chríost Rí, which was won by Loreto on a 3-14 to 2-9 scoreline.

Scoil Chríost Rí were also beaten semi-finalists in 2017, when they lost out to Ballygawley, but they’ve now given themselves a chance of winning another senior title, following on from the 2013 Senior C Final victory over Virginia, Cavan.

Loreto, Clonmel, were also Senior B Finalists two years ago, while they landed the Senior C title back in 2011.

But for both of these schools, victory would represent a very first Lidl All-Ireland Post Primary Schools A title win.

This game, which is fixed for John Locke Park in Callan, county Kilkenny, will be streamed LIVE on the Ladies Gaelic Football Association’s Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/LadiesGaelicFootball/

This is the first time that a Lidl All-Ireland PPS Final will be broadcast LIVE by the LGFA, and commentary will come from Jerome Quinn and current Tipperary senior team captain Samantha Lambert.

The Senior C Final also takes place on Saturday, and features Mercy, Ballymahon (Longford) against St Mary’s High School, Midleton (Cork).

The action gets underway on Friday when Coláiste Bhaile Chláir from Claregalway in county Galway, who won a Senior C and Junior B All-Ireland double in 2018, play St Patrick’s Academy, Dungannon (Tyrone) in the Senior B Final.

The Junior Finals will follow a week later, and Coláiste Bhaile Chláir have the chance to claim another All-Ireland double as they also feature in the Junior A Final.

Their opponents there are St Catherine’s (Armagh), while the Junior B Final features Moate Community School (Westmeath) and Coláiste Oiriall (Monaghan).

The Junior C Final is a Tipperary v Wexford affair, as Cashel Community School take on FCJ Bunclody.

Further details, including times and venues for the Junior Finals, will be available from the Ladies Gaelic Football Association Website in the coming days: https://ladiesgaelic.ie/
