Underage GAA Competitions Set To Resume

Underage hurling and football competitions are set to resume in the next ten days.

Leinster GAA informed members last night that they hope to play their Electric Ireland Under 20 Hurling quarter finals, starting next Friday.

In Ulster, the football competition was at the quarter-final stage, however with the North still in lockdown, there is no confirmation of when those fixtures will return.

Monaghan the defending champions are scheduled to meet Antrim, with the other Quarter final pairings, Fermanagh against Down, Tyrone up against Donegal and Derry taking on Armagh.

Connacht had originally earmarked their Centre of Excellence as the venue for their minor championship with Galway set to meet Leitrim in the preliminary round with the winners going up against Roscommon, while Mayo and Sligo would contest the other semi final.

While no date has yet been confirmed for the re-scheduling of those fixtures the knockout format of the competition with the fixtures at the Centre of Excellence will probably be retained.

Competitions have been on hold due to Level 5 COVID-19 restrictions.
