DONEGAL Ladies have been drawn with reigning TG4 All-Ireland champions Dublin in the round-robin phase of the revised 2020 Championship.
Maxi Curran’s Donegal will face the Dubs and Waterford in their three-team group.
The draws were conducted in Portlaoise yesterday evening, with the four-in-a-row chasing Sky Blues handed a spot in Group 3 of the pool stages.
Galway, the 2019 runners-up, have been drawn with last year’s Intermediate winners Tipperary and Monaghan in Group 2, while 11-time Senior champions Cork will battle it out with Munster rivals Kerry, and Ulster representatives Cavan, in Group 1.
The four teams topping their respective groups will progress straight through to the All-Ireland semi-finals, with the 1st team in Group 1 facing off against the Group 2 table-toppers, while the Group 3 winners will play the top team in Group 4.
Dublin, Galway, Cork and Mayo – the 2019 semi-finalists – were seeded for the Senior draw.
Ladies Gaelic Football Association President Marie Hickey and Ard Stiúrthóir TG4, Alan Esslemont, were on hand to conduct the draws, and the 2020 finals will mark the 20th of the long-standing partnership between the LGFA and TG4.
It was also confirmed that promotion is on offer for the winners of the 2020 Junior and Intermediate Championships, but relegation will not apply in the Intermediate and Senior grades.
The dates for the 2020 TG4 All-Ireland Ladies Football Championships will be confirmed in due course.
