Galway star Damien Comer has hit out at the Ladies Gaelic Football Association after the All-Ireland ladies football semi-final wasn’t televised due to a late venue change.
The semi-final clash between Galway and Cork was originally due to be played at the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick, but was moved to Parnell Park to avoid a clash with a Limerick training session.
Really feel for Galway Ladies. They arrived 20 mins before throw in and had about 5 mins to warm up for an All Ireland Semi Final due to another venue change! Equality my arse! The LGFA have so much to answer. What a shambles #jokeshop #lgfa

However, the game had to change venue again as Parnell Park had a frozen pitch, with the match eventually being played in Croke Park.
TG4 was originally meant to televise the game but as a result of the late change in venue, the broadcaster was unable to show the match.
Cork were comfortable winners in the end, beating Galway by 2-17 to 0-13 to set up an All-Ireland final date with Dublin in two weeks time.
‘Equality my arse!’
Many fans and pundits took to Twitter to share their disgruntlement at the LGFA, with Comer labelling the whole affair as a “shambles”.

“Really feel for Galway Ladies. They arrived 20 mins before throw in and had about 5 mins to warm up for an All Ireland Semi Final due to another venue change!
“Equality my arse! The LGFA have so much to answer. What a shambles,” said Galway star Comer through his Twitter account.
Cork were well worth their win over Galway, opening up a seven point lead after 17 minutes, which left the Galwegians chasing the game from early on.
A tougher challenge awaits them in the shape of Dublin though, who defeated Armagh by a score of 3-13 to 3-08 in Breffni Park in Cavan last night.
Mick Bohan’s side are aiming for their fourth All-Ireland title in a row, with only old rivals Cork left standing in their way.
Cork meanwhile will want to regain All-Ireland supremacy, having won an astonishing six All-Ireland titles in a row between 2011 and 2016.
