On July 18th, 1974, the first meeting of the Ladies Gaelic Football Association was held at Hayes Hotel in Thurles. Later that same year the first Senior Ladies All Ireland Football Final took place with Tipperary winning the crown. On September 29th, 2013 the 40th Senior Ladies All Ireland Football Final will take place at Croke Park and to mark the occasion every player that represented their county in the All Ireland Final is being invited to attend the 40th All Ireland Final in September.

Over the period of the last 40 years some of the players that have contested the finals have inevitably lost contact with their county boards. We are asking anyone that has played in a final or anyone that knows somebody that played in a final to either get in contact with their local county board or to contact the LGFA directly with their details.

Any former players or anyone with information can contact the Ladies Gaelic Football Association on info@ladiesgaelic.ie or on 01 836 3156
