Longford face Wicklow in opening ladies football fixture

Wicklow made up for their 2020 Final loss to land the TG4 All-Ireland Junior crown last year and they also remained in Division 3 after seeing off Fermanagh in a relegation play-off.

Experienced Wicklow player Jackie Kinch, more noted for her outfield exploits, is listed between the sticks while Lorna Fusciardi, who appeared to have announced her retirement at Croke Park last September, is named in the starting team.

Longford finished behind Kildare and Laois in the League standings last year but they did have a brilliant result in the Championship when they shocked Westmeath in their opening fixture.
