The GAA has confirmed that the Allianz Hurling Leagues will begin on the first weekend in May.
It means Brian Lohan’s interocunty hurlers will begin their 2021 campaign on the weekend of May 8th and 9th.
The football leagues, where Colm Collins’ side sit in Division 2A, commence a week later.
It’s also been confirmed that this year’s Football Championship will once again be a straight knockout, with no qualifiers and the Tailteann Cup on hold for a year.
The Hurling Championship will also be based on a provincial knockout basis, but with qualifiers.
Neither London nor New York will be involved this year.
