The Premier County's under-14, under-15 and under-16 hurling panels have been named with a series of prestigious inter-county tournaments set to take place this weekend.
The most prestigious of which is, of course, the Arrabawn Co-Up Inter-County Tournament - down the years under-16 inter-county teams competed in the Arrabawn, but this season the tournament will feature under-15 teams (the adjustment was made in keeping with minor moving to under-17 for the first time this year). The under-14A squad will compete as normal in the Tony Forristal Tournament in Waterford alongside the under-14B squad in the Sonny Maher. Meanwhile the under-16s will also be in action against their inter-county counterparts this weekend.
The Arrabawn Co-Op Tournament was launched recently in the Horse & Jockey Hotel and this year the competing teams have been graded into three sections meaning that three finals will take place in both the A and B competitions.
Every competing team is guaranteed a minimum of two games. The matches will get underway at 10.30am in six different venues and the first of the six finals is set to take place at 12 noon, two more will take place at 2pm and another two at 3.30pm before the cup final is scheduled to be broadcast on TG4 at 5pm.
