The Ladies Gaelic Football Association has confirmed that Cork's All-Ireland semi-final against Donegal has been moved back a week so as to avoid a clash with the county's involvement in the All-Ireland camogie semi-final.

The Munster county were scheduled to play Donegal in the last four of the women's semi on Saturday, 18 August the same day that the defending All-Ireland champions take on Tipperary in the camogie semis.

In light of this clash, the LGFA have now revived their arrangements and have now fixed both All-Ireland semi finals for Saturday, 25 August.

Cork will take on Dublin at 2.45pm, while winners of the remaining quarter-final fixtures – Dublin v Kerry and Galway v Mayo – will feature in the other semi-final at 4.30pm.

LGFA CEO Helen O’Rourke said: "We announced the times and dates of our summer fixtures schedule last March, when it was clearly stated that our All-Ireland senior semi-finals would be played on 18 August and 25 August.  

"We stated at the time that finding suitable times for our televised fixtures proved extremely challenging, and that we felt restricted to a large degree, due to the GAA’s new, condensed fixtures schedule.  

"When Cork qualified for the TG4 All-Ireland senior semi-final last weekend, a dual fixtures clash arose but, as an Association, we took it upon ourselves to find a solution suitable to all parties.  

"It should be noted at this point that altering a fixtures schedule so late in the season has a significant knock-on effect and impact on club and county players in other counties, and that we had to negotiate a number of logistical and contractual issues on this occasion before arriving at this solution.  

"It should also be pointed out that personal plans relating to some individuals, around previously confirmed holiday arrangements and family occasions, were also considered and factored into exhaustive discussions with various stakeholders.  

"We would like to thank Donegal for agreeing to play their semi-final a week later, on 25 August, and to our championship sponsors and broadcast partners TG4, who have had to revise a number of plans to accommodate this change."
