Fixtures have been announced

The CCCC has announced the re-fixture details for all of the Allianz Football and Hurling League matches that were postponed last weekend because of the adverse weather conditions.

Round 5 of both the Allianz Football and Hurling Leagues will now take place this weekend, Saturday March 10 and Sunday March 11.

However, there is one exception to this and that is the Laois footballers.

They will actually play their Round 6 game against London on Sunday.

Laois’s Round 5 game against Antrim has been refixed for March 31/April 1.

This was the date that the league final was supposed to be played on so now the Division 4 final will be pushed back to the weekend of April 7/8.

This month had originally been penciled in for club games only but this rule looks like it will be broken.

As for the hurlers, Laois will now face Dublin on Sunday afternoon in O’Moore Park at 2.30pm.

This is a must win match for Laois as if they lose they will be in the relegation final against Antrim.

While a win or draw will put Laois into the quarter finals.

Most of the matches will be played on Sunday afternoon, including the Division 1 Allianz Football League clash between Dublin and Kerry at Croke Park.

The Division 1 Allianz Hurling League Quarter finals have been moved to the weekend of March 17/18, the semi-finals to the weekend of March 24/25 and the Allianz Hurling League final to March 31.
