2023 is shaping up to be a very busy year for women in sport. Along with the highly anticipated Fifa Women’s World Cup starting in July, there are a lot of other major events happening.
The sports season starts with the Women's Six Nations, which takes place on March 25th. The Irish women are set to play Wales in their first match in Cardiff, followed by a home game in Musgrave Park against France on April 1st.
After a week break, the women are back in action against Italy in Parma on April 15th before their game against England at home on April 22nd. The final game of the tournament will see the Irish women taking on Scotland in Edinburgh on April 29th.
All games will be shown across RTE Two and Virgin Media One channels.
This year, the World Cup is being held in Australia and New Zealand and kicks off on July 20th, with the final taking place a month later on August 20th. The Irish women play their first match on July 20th, taking on Australia. Their second game will be on July 26th against Canada, followed by a game against Nigeria on July 31st. Every match will be shown on RTE, so we can cheer on the girls in green from home.
There will certainly be no shortage of Ladies GAA matches over the coming months. The Lidl Ladies National Football League Division 1 recently kicked off.
The top two teams in Divisions 1, 2 and 3 will make it to the Lidl National League Finals, scheduled for April. The Divisions 1 and 2 Finals will be played in Croke Park on Saturday the 15th and the Divisions 3 and 4 Finals are set to be on the following day, the 16th.
