The All-Ireland Ladies Football final has been scheduled for Croke Park on Sunday, December 20.

The senior showpiece, along with the intermediate decider, will take place on that date, five days before Christmas, although the junior final, traditionally held on the same day, will not be played at Croke Park due to limits on pitch usage. 

It will be a busy few weeks for the Croke Park groundmen, with the two ladies football finals coming a day after the senior men's final, and a week after the hurling, camogie, and Joe McDonagh Cup finals.

The LGFA also revealed the senior and intermediate championships will throw-in on the weekend of October 31/ November 1. 

The three group-stage games will be played off on three consecutive weekends, with All-Ireland champions Dublin getting their title defence underway against Donegal. The following weekend, Cork will face Kerry in Group 1. 

The semi-finals are fixed for November 28/29.

The junior championship begins on October 24/25, with the final to be played on the weekend of December 5/6.
