The revised draws will take place for the Munster and Leinster SHC later today with the competitions starting on October 24/25.

The hurling championship reverts back to the system played in 2017 with a second chance for all teams bar the provincial winners.

The Munster and Leinster SHC finals will be played on November 14/15, the All-Ireland quarter-finals on November 21/22 and the All-Ireland semi-finals on 28/29 November.

The All-Ireland finalists will have a two week break prior to the decider on December 13.

The Joe McDonagh Cup will be played in its normal round robin format but the winners will not participate in the race for the Liam MacCarthy Cup but instead the final will be played as the curtain raiser on All-Ireland SHC final day.

The Ring and Rackard Cup will be straight knock-out while the Lory Meagher Cup will retain its current format. The inclusion of teams from England will be dependent on travel restrictions.

The Allianz HL Division 2A, 2B and 3A finals will be played on October 17/18. The Division 1 final will not be played but if Clare (top of HL 1B) and Limerick (top of HL 1A) meet in the championship, that game will double up as the Division 1 HL final.

The U20 and MHC will start in October and be played on a straight knockout basis. The All-Ireland MHC final will not be played on the same day as the senior final.
