The Bank of Ireland Celtic Challenge


The Bank of Ireland Celtic Challenge was established in 2016 and is the only competition in Hurling that has teams from all 32 counties participating. The ethos of the competition is a developmental one and through the competition each team is guaranteed to play 5 games.

For 2019, a total of 44 teams with over 1,300 players will play in 138 games - including 6 Finals - as part of the Bank of Ireland Celtic Challenge.

Group H will commence their group games on Sunday 31st March and conclude their group games on Sunday 5th May. All other Groups will commence on Wednesday 1st May and conclude their group games on Wednesday 5th June. After this point all 44 teams will be graded and assigned to one of six Divisions to play in Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals and Finals.

Provincial Roadshows are currently taking place with Coaches, Referees and Players and the National Launch of the Bank of Ireland Celtic Challenge will take place on Wednesday 24th April.

Fixtures for 2019 will be available shortly.
