There has been a change of dates for the County Hurling Finals. The original dates were Thursday June 9th and Friday June 10th. I booked these dates back in January with the Semple Stadium Committee and they said the dates were fine. However yesterday May 10th I received information from the Munster Council that these dates weren't ok despite being told in January they were. The Munster Council have a match in Semple Stadium on June 12th and won't allow us use the Stadium on the 9th and 10th.
Therefore the new dates for the finals are Tuesday June 14th and Wednesday June 15th. I realise alot of schools booked their school tours around the original final dates and I hope that this doesn't inconvenience schools too much. If it does sincere apologies for that. Any schools who have booked tours for those dates should inform me straight away and I will accomodate you come County Final Timetable time. This is extremely annoyoing for me given that I booked the Stadium 4 months ago only to be told yesterday we had to change the dates. In future I will go through Munster Council, along with the Stadium Committee, as it is clear to me that its Munster Council who are really in charge of Stadium bookings, particularly at Championship time. Once again I want to apologise if this is an inconvenience to the schools.
The new dates are set in stone now and wont be changed as there is no leeway around those dates. There is a match the following weekend aswell, and that is why I can't go for Thursday and Friday the 16th and 17th.
We can still look forward to the 2 days of fantastic hurling and camogie action at the Cathedral of Hurling.
I'd like to wish all the schools the very best for the rest of the Cumann na mBunscol Championships.
