At County Committee this evening decisions were made regarding changes to the All County League and the Michael Murphy Sports and Leisure Senior Championship:


1 there will be no relegation from Divisions, 1, 2 and 3 this year but there will be promotion from Divisions 2, 3 and 4. Thus, in 2022 there will be 12 teams in Division 1, 10 in Division 2, 10 in Division 3 and 8 or 9 in Division 4. An updated schedule of fixtures for this weekend will be released tomorrow;

2 the County Championship will precede as planned but there will be a change in regulation to allow teams they might be affected by Covid to have an extra chance to avoid relegation, namely, by increasing the number of teams going into the relegation play-offs. For example, in the Senior championship where only the bottom four were previously proceeding to relegation play-offs now the bottom eight will do so.


CLG Dhún na nGall will also write to Ulster Council to seek a delay to the start of the Ulster Club Championship.
