(2) Completion Dates
The completion date for the group stages in Football is July 4th ( Division 7, July 7th ) and in Hurling July 11th (Division 8, July 14th ). League finals are scheduled for the weekend of August 1st (Football) and August 8th (Hurling). Dates and times for all regular rounds have been fixed by the CCC.
The first named team has home venue, but if this venue is not available, the game will be played at the opponent’s venue or at neutral venue. The national flag is to be flown for all league games and pitches are to be properly lined and flagged.
Where the appointed referee fails to attend, agreement must be reached between the two clubs on a substitute referee by either tossing or by agreement. Failure to comply will result in forfeiture of the league points by the club or clubs failing to agree. In the event of a referee being agreed by both clubs it is the responsibility of the club of the referee to ensure that the official report of the game is submitted within three days of the game. If the agreed referee is not a member of either participating club, the responsibility for ensuring the report is submitted shall rest with the home club.
All fixtures listed at the start of the year are thereby ratified for the dates / times outlined.
