Clare GAA are to review the possibility of concluding the U21 hurling championship and commencing the U20 football campaign.
Action in the U21 hurling championship began in March of this year prior to the cessation of games on account of the outbreak of COVID-19. Sixmilebridge defeated Tulla while Clonlara overcame St Josephs Doora/Barefield to book their place in the semi-finals of the A competition.
First round victories were recorded by Ballyea, Clooney/Quin and Scariff/Ogonnelloe in the B competition.
Traditionally the U20 football championship is played at the end of autumn and beginning of winter, it’s planned schedule had not been impacted by COVID-19.
A spokesperson for the master fixtures committee outlined, “The current focus is on getting the 2020 adult championships played. The U21 hurling championship had commenced in March. It is hoped that both competitions can be completed later in the year after Clare’s Intercounty programme has been completed depending on weather etc. The matter will be reviewed by the CCCC later this year”.
