The Mayo ladies football team will not complete their 2020 Lidl Ladies National League campaign after the Ladies Gaelic Football Association (LGFA) today announced the cancellation of its National League competitions in response to the Covid-19 outbreak.
Mayo had two games outstanding in their Division 1 campaign, away to Tipperary and Galway, having won three of their opening five matches before the cessation of activities. Those games will not be played and there will be no relegation from nor promotion to Division 1 for 2021.
The LGFA Post Primary Schools Competitions have also been cancelled for 2020, along with the LGFA Interprovincial Competition, the All-Ireland U14 Championship, Féile na nÓg and Féile Skills.
In a statement, the LGFA said that “the prime concern for the Ladies Gaelic Football Association at the present time is the health and wellbeing of our members.
“Consequently, a number of decisions have been made in respect of LGFA competitions, which have not been taken lightly.”
The statement went on to say that 2020 TG4 All-Ireland senior championship, which is due to begin in July, will be reviewed on an ongoing basis in line with Government regulations.
