GOOD news for Cork ladies football supporters, the Rebels' opening two league matches will be screened among the 10 being broadcast by TG4 in the coming weeks.
This is more than double the four games broadcast from the secondary competition in 2020.
Cork will be in Páirc Uí Chaoimh for both games, maintaining the overdue access to the stadium for the county's women's teams, which has been a positive development since it was reopened in 2017.
Friday week, May 21 the Lidl-sponsored Ladies National Football Leagues will get underway as Cork meet Tipperary at 7.30pm.
Then on May 29, there is a repeat of the 2020 All-Ireland final as Cork's clash with Dublin will be shown.
