A meeting of the Munster CCC took place on Thursday night November 29th at Aras Mumhan, Limerick. The following decisions were made –
The fixtures for the 2019 Munster GAA Senior Hurling Championship were ratified
2019 Senior Hurling Fixtures.
The draws for the Munster GAA Senior Hurling Championship Round-Robin fixtures were made in 2017 for a five year period. The only changes possible as a result pertain to the running order each year. A discussion took place in relation to changing the running order of the 2019 fixtures in line with how Leinster Council will run their 2019 Round Robin Championship. While two counties will have to play three weeks in a row in the current Munster structure for 2019, this was deemed preferable to a county playing two away matches to begin the competition and another county playing two away matches to end the competition which would be the consequence of making such a change. The running order of fixtures will be reviewed again by the Munster CCC after the 2019 Championship.
Waterford proposed to amend the regulation whereby in the event a county is unable to host home games, it would be possible to nominate venues outside the province. This proposal was defeated. Discussions are ongoing in relation to Waterford hosting their 2019 Munster Senior Hurling Championship home games versus Clare and Limerick in Walsh Park Waterford.
