Upcoming fixtures & Preview

On what is normally a quiet weekend, there are two rescheduled Junior games down for decision on Bank Holiday Monday.

In Section A of the Munster Junior League, Thurles, who are tied in ninth place with Old Christians, Crosshaven and Muskerry on 13 points, welcome defending champions Newcastle West, who are fourth, to the Premier County. Thurles will be looking to make the most of home advantage count as they aim to take another step closer to safety. This is a busy period for Newcastle West, who have a backlog of League games and a re-fixed All Ireland Junior Cup semi-final in the coming weeks.

Clonakilty lock horns with Thomond in the Munster Junior Clubs’ Challenge Cup first round tie at The Vale and the winners will be rewarded with home advantage in the quarter finals against Kilfeacle.

There are also several underage games across various competitions down for decision this weekend, which were postponed just before Christmas.
