THE Camogie Association has moved next month's Cork versus Galway game by a day to avoid a clash with the Rebels' ladies footballers. 

The match will now move from Saturday, November 7 to Sunday, November 8. Cork have five players involved across both senior panels in both codes.

Galway previously notified the Association to say they were willing to go back a day to accomodate dual players.

A statement explained: 

"In relation to ongoing work by the Camogie Association over the past number of weeks to avoid fixture clashes with LGFA fixtures where possible, we are pleased to confirm that we have been able to find a solution to avoid a clash on Saturday, November 7 for this particular fixture.

The Camogie Association are happy to respond positively to a request from Galway Camogie Board and can confirm that the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Senior Championship Group 1 fixture between Galway versus Cork, originally scheduled for Saturday, November 7 has now been re-arranged for Sunday, November 8 to avoid a clash with a Cork LGFA fixture.

"We thank Galway Camogie Board and their management team for their co-operation on this matter.

"We will continue to work with our colleagues in Camogie County Boards and with the LGFA to facilitate dual players where possible within the current fixtures schedule.

"We remind all members to comply with the latest Covid-19 Return to Play Protocols and to minimise their social contacts."
