RedFM Hurling League Finals Completed
5 Clubs won Silverware over the past week
The RedFM Hurling Leagues concluded this week after a very successful year. The County board changed the format slightly and changed the points structure which proved popular among the clubs. The leagues also finished at the start of August which was a welcome change from the cold nights in Winter when the finals would normally be played. Well done to Kevin O' Donovan and his team on the County Board for the successful running of the compeitions and of course the clubs.
In the past year there was a 10% increase in league matches played across the top five divisions in both football and hurling. There was a decrease in league games which doubled up with championship of 70% and the number of games conceded decreased by 50%. Void games were eliminated. These targets were achieved despite the league deadline being brought forward by six weeks.
