Expanded Hurling Leagues for clubs

The 2019 County Hurling Leagues will provide an increased number of games after a motion proposed by Lorrha was passed.

The leagues over the last two years saw twelve teams in each of the six divisions, divided into two groups of six, with each club playing five games with the top two teams in each division progressing to semi-finals and finals, with the competition being completed in seven weekends.

The Lorrha motion proposed that the league in divisions 1, 2 & 3 would be completed in eight weekends with each division now comprising of 16 teams, divided into two groups of eight, thereby guaranteeing each club seven games. Divisions 4 & 5 would remain with twelve teams each, divided into two groups of six, as many of those clubs will be junior teams that will be starting championships during the summer months.

The motion also proposed that there would be 2 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, 0 points for a loss but with also points deductions for teams that concede walkovers with one point deducted for one walkover while a team that concedes two or more walkovers would be automatically relegated to ensure clubs treat it seriously.
