DONEGAL ladies get their 2021 Lidl Ladies National Football League campaign underway in Ballybofey on Sunday when they host Westmeath.
Maxi Curran’s team can consider themselves unfortunate not to have made the knockout stages of the 2020 Championship.
They gave Dublin a real run for their money, before enjoying a comfortable victory over Waterford.
There’s undoubted talent in the Donegal ranks while Westmeath will be hoping to erase some of the memories of their Intermediate Final loss to Meath in December.
Donegal give a debut to Cork native Shelly Twohig at midfield alongside Katy Herron while star forward Geraldine McLaughlin plays her 100th game in the county colours.
Westmeath have flirted with relegation in recent times and they need to show good form to avoid another basement battle.
All of Sunday’s 13 fixtures can be viewed for free at home and around the world by accessing the LGFA and Lidl’s new dedicated National League portal: https://page.inplayer.com/lidlnfl/
