Kildare GAA have revealed the fixture list ahead of the start of the Senior Football and Hurling League's next month.

The Football Competition will begin on the 23rd of March with games running over consecutive weeks until the beginning of the Championship at the start of May.

Division 1 looks as competitive s ever with a few cracking ties on the opening weekend with county Champions Moorefield encountering a familiar face when they meet Carbury who are now managed by former player Philip Wolfe.

Elsewhere the 2018 League Champions Athy will travel to Sarsfields with Naas and Celbridge also an appealing tie on paper.

Division 1 is the most heavily populated with 12 teams while the other three tiers of the league have 10 teams each.

On the Hurling side of things eight teams take their place in Division 1 and the games will commence on Saturday the 16th of March with Ardclough and Celbridge renewing aquatiances from last year's county final in the opening game with Naas v Eire OG Chorrachoill, Clane v Coill Dubh and the local derby of Leixlip and Confey the other games on show.

Unlike the Football there will be scattered intervals throughout the League as there aren't as many teams involved.

A full list of the fixtures can be viewed on the Kildare GAA website.
