Icy blast still holds with rescheduled games called off


With snow still lying on the Parnell Park and Innovate Wexford Park pitches, Monday’s rescheduled Allianz Hurling quarter-final matches involving Dublin-Tipperary and Wexford-Galway will now not take place. 

Both games will be re-fixed for next weekend with the GAA’s Central Competitions Control Committee to confirm fixture details on Tuesday.

The remaining last-eight ties involving Offaly-Kilkenny and Limerick-Clare will go ahead on Bank Holiday Monday, with the former now set for a 1,30pm start at O’Connor Park in Tullamore, while the Gaelic Grounds will play host to the mid-west derby at 4pm.

With it all means is that the top-tier hurling final will more than likely take place on the weekend of 7/8 April, two weeks later than its scheduled date – 24 March – owing to Storm Emma and now this latest cold snap.

Tuesday’s CCCC meeting will also have to reschedule the Down v Tipperary football clash in Division 2 which was called off earlier today and the Cuala v Na Piarsaigh All-Ireland Club SHC final replay. 

All games due to take place on Monday are subject to early morning pitch inspections.
