Cross County U13 & U15 Leagues
Clubs across Leinster have jumped at the chance to take part in new cross-county leagues for under 13 and under 15 age groups, which will start on Saturday, 28th January.
The leagues will present an opportunity for clubs from adjoining counties to compete against each other for the first time.
Games will run through a period when most counties do not fix matches for these age groups.
Former GAA President, Liam O’Neill chaired a Leinster GAA focus group which identified the potential for more GAA activity for U-13 and U-15 in the first few months of the year.
Clubs who enter the leagues have been grouped and graded under the guidance of relevant personnel within each county, with geography, club size and standard all taken into account.
A fixtures plan has been drawn up which proposes to run five rounds in football between the 28th January and 11th March. A similiar hurling league will take place between 18th February and 26th March.
Leinster GAA Games Managers Alan Mulhall and James Devane have been co-ordinating with clubs and are delighted with the positive response shown.
