The draws for the various provincial Championships in hurling and football are set to be made next week. The draws will be made live on RTÉ, split across the Morning Ireland show on Radio One and the station’s Six-One TV news programme.
It’s on the latter programme, next Monday evening, that the Connacht Championship draw will be made. They might even get George Lee to do it – it would make a welcome change from his usual diet of downbeat pronouncements about Covid infection rates.
Full details on what draws are being made and when by RTÉ are here.
Fixture details for the forthcoming National League campaign should also be out soon. The Irish Independent had some news on this today (here) and I know that some counties have already begun to confirm their own match details. There’s no white smoke from Mayo GAA in that respect yet but, by the sounds of it, this information should be available before too long.
