The Camogie Association and the Ladies Gaelic Football Association have confirmed that their respective All-Ireland semi-finals are set to clash.

The Associations issued a joint press release today stating that both games are fixed for Saturday 18 August, explaining that TV issues were at the heart of the decision.

"Due to live television broadcast commitments – Camogie with RTÉ and Ladies Football with TG4 - it is not possible for either Association to move their respective fixtures," the statement read.

"And therefore there remains a possibility that dependent upon which counties reach these fixtures that a fixture clash for some dual players may occur.

"Whilst both Associations recognise and commend the dedication of all such dual players and work closely together to avoid such scenarios from arising, it is not always possible to do so in light of both Associations’ various commitments such as television coverage which aim to help to further promote and grow both sports respectively.

"Both the Camogie Association and LGFA have been in contact with the respective County Boards and management teams in the past number of weeks to highlight these potential clashes so as to minimise the impact upon them."

Last year Cork dual star Libby Coppinger was forced to choose between the two codes when her All-Ireland senior football quarter-final was down for decision on the same day as the All-Ireland Camogie semi-final.
