Draft Schedule For National Football And Hurling League Fixtures Released

As we head into the winter with the intercounty season consigned to memory, the national leagues in the New Year are the next major county competitions on the calendar.

Today, a draft schedule has been released for the national leagues, and there are a few interesting ties in store.

All-Ireland football champions Dublin get their campaign underway with a Saturday night clash with neighbours Kildare in Croke Park, which will act as a doubleheader, after the county’s hurlers take on Offaly in Division 1B.

The hurling will see a January start this year, and the big opener in Division 1A is the meeting of Cork and Kilkenny on a Saturday night.
