U-21 Interpros refixed/Irish cup action

The IHA announced this morning that the Management Board has approved the recommendation to reschedule the U-21 Interprovincial Tournaments for the weekend of 17/19 April 2009 in Grange Road.

The date could prove an interesting one, coinciding as it does with the final round of Leinster league matches with Glenanne set to visit Three Rock in a potentially title-deciding tie.

Glenanne had Richie Shaw and Jonathon Kane included in Niall Denham’s initial Leinster squad as was Rover’s Timmy Hill while Patrick Shanahan is in the Munster squad.
