Minor Hurling Document from Kevin OShaughnessy to be looked at in detail Summary The top 8 club teams and 8 amalgamated teams for championship only Players play with their clubs in the league
Issues arising How walkovers affect score difference? Can college teams play in the League? Status: because junior 1- 8 have 14 games should status rule be changed to allow a player to play 5/6 games before losing status?
