A young woman is lobbying the Ladies Football Gaelic Association (LGFA) to allow her and her teammates play in an All-Ireland schools final, saying it was a measure of "inequality" that boys had been allowed to play and not girls.

Emma Kelly (19), a final year student at Moate Community School and also the vice-captain of Moate CS Senior Women's GAA team, has written to the LGFA asking the team be allowed to play the All-Ireland final against Loreto Secondary School in Clonmel.

The game had been cancelled in March due to Covid-19 but Emma said boys' teams have been allowed to play due to the GAA giving permission.
