Will County Board mess up once again?

(Oldest Posts First)

Heard a rumour the county board are going to fix the hurling semi finals for the same day as the Wexford ladies football team play in Croke Park. We had the bad situation like this a few years ago when they fixed games for the same day as the camogie final. This is about common sense and giving our girls their due repsect and give them a chance of having a big support in croke park .
Ferns for one have three girls playing on the team, Oulart have involvement, and Shelmeliars have involvement too , lets hope that Denis Cadogan and his fixtures committee use common sense and keep this day free of games.

Senior and Intermediate will go something like this I'd imagine

Football Quarters this weekend. 14th/15th
Football Semis following weekend 21st/22nd
Hurling Semi's either early 28th/late 29th...........IMO there should be no games on when our ladies footballers are in an All Ireland, but the county board will prob disregard that and play the matches Sunday afternoon due to the ladies playing at 1pm. "Sure nobody will be going to that anyway, it's on tv" Due to All ireland the day before at 5pm, they will prob play the junior semi's that day (early) to avoid clash with AI.
Football Finals 5/6th October
Hurling Finals 12/13th Oct

That schedule allows for no draws and dual clubs being involved in SHhurling/SFootball or IFootball - not very fair?
