The IHA has announced that all competitions under their jurisdiction this weekend – the Irish Junior and Challenge competitions – have been called off. The decision to postpone these matches has been taken in light of the current weather conditions and in the interest of personal safety.
The replay date for these fixtures will be announced early next week but can advise they will not take place on weekend of January 16 due to Irish Senior Cup.
The Leinster men’s branch have followed suit and are asking clubs to look into potential refixture dates but added that they “may have to consider extending the season” in light of the weather prognosis for the next ten days.
It follows the decision of the Leinster ladies branch and the Munster branch to cancel all hockey this weekend.
