2019 Munster Senior Championship Draws

The 2019 Munster Senior Football Championship Draws took place on Thursday October 11th. Tipperary will play Limerick with the winners playing Cork while Clare take on Waterford with the winners playing Kerry.



The 2019 Munster Senior Hurling Championship requires no draw as the rounds move up 1 week from the previous year. This is as per the regulations approved as part of the 3 year trial period for the round-robin structure. For example, Round 2 in 2018 now becomes Round 1 in 2019, Round 3 in 2018 becomes Round 2 in 2019 and so on.

Specific dates, times and venues will be confirmed in due course by the Munster CCC.

National Student Bursaries Scheme 2018/2019

NATIONAL STUDENT BURSARIES SCHEME 2018/19 (MUNSTER)

The GAA have again reiterated their commitment to the ongoing educational development of its players and members by announcing details of the 2018/2019 GAA National Student Bursary scheme. Now in its eleventh year, the scheme is open to members of the Association who are attending a full-time Higher Education course (except those who hold another GAA-related or college scholarship/bursary) and who are active participants in their Higher Education club; to date the GAA has invested over €2million in the past decade that the Bursary Schemes have been in existence.

The schemes are administered by the respective Provincial Councils and recipients will again be selected based on a range of criteria, including their playing, coaching or administrative commitments to the GAA. A number of awards in each province will be reserved for those excelling in the areas of coaching and administration.

Applications in Munster for the scheme will be considered by a sub-committee of the Munster Council and each bursary granted will be for €750.

Students should apply using the relevant application form to the Provincial Council of their home GAA Club.

All completed forms should be returned to the relevant details on the application form and the
closing date for applications is Friday October 5th.

Senior Inter-County players who were on their County’s Senior Panel in 2018 should apply for Bursaries via the Gaelic Players Association; further information at www.gaelicplayers.com.
