Mid Leinster AIG Cups and Shields Round 1 Changes

​Change of Deadline and Venues for 1st Round Matches

  • 15 March 2020

​Good day to you all.

Due to Covid-19 and the current restrictions in place, the ILGU has now issued a directive that all matches be postponed until after the 29th March 2020.  The result of any match played to date will stand.


The following are the revised dates;

1st Round matches

Date:    To be played on or by Sunday 19th April

In Mid Leinster this will affect the Junior Foursomes, Intermediate, Minor and Challenge Cups first rounds. In light of the new timelines and to make the rearranging of the matches as easy as possible, the decision has been taken to change the venues for the Intermediate, Minor and Challenge Cups matches to a Home and Away format – i.e. the club on the top of the draw will have 3 matches at home and 2 away (3 lowest players play at home)

The 3 Junior Foursomes first round matches will stay in the current format and play at the designated neutral venues.


2nd Round matches

Date:    To be played on or by Tuesday 6th May as per the draw sheets

It is hoped that these will go ahead at the designated neutral venues but if this changes, we will communicate that to the clubs.


As you can appreciate these are fast changing and unpredictable times and the safety and wellbeing of our members is paramount.

Pending the progression of Covid-19 and guidelines from the HSE, we will review the playing of matches for subsequent rounds following the period of restriction.

Stay safe everyone

Kind regards

Tournament Committee
