All-Ireland football champions Dublin will begin their quest for six-in-a-row in O’Moore Park, Portlaoise on Saturday, November 7th with a 6.15pm throw-in. It’s the same venue where they’ve started their last three championships.

Leinster GAA released their finalised championship fixtures for this year on Thursday and as expected all the senior hurling championship matches in the province will be staged at Croke Park, starting on Saturday week, October 24th at 6pm.

This year’s football semi-finals will also be played at the venue on Sunday November 15th.

It will be the Dublin hurlers’ first championship match in Croke Park since 2016 whereas Laois played twice there last summer, against Tipperary in the All-Ireland quarter-final and when winning the McDonagh Cup against Westmeath.

The provincial hurling final will be at 6.15pm on Saturday November 14th and the football final takes place a week later, also in Croke Park where on the same evening the centenary of Bloody Sunday will be commemorated.
