Kildare to begin Leinster campaign in Carlow as Leinster GAA reveal fixture details for senior and underage competitions
17:49 Friday 30th of November 2018

Kildare's opening game in the Leinster Senior Football Championship for 2019 has been pencilled in for Netwatch Cullen Park in Carlow, where they will take on Wicklow in a preliminary round game.

Cian O'Neill's men will face Longford in the quarter-final should they get past the Garden County, and a potential meeting with Dublin is in store for the Leinster semi-final.

The tie with Wicklow has been fixed for May 11 at 7pm.

The Kildare U20 footballers will begin the defence of their Leinster and All-Ireland titles against Laois next year, with the O'Moore County first up in preliminary round of the Leinster Championship.

The defending champions will play Westmeath if they make it into the last eight, while Dublin are on the other side of the draw and the two sides can only meet in a final.

The Kildare minor footballers will be in a group alongside Kilkenny, Wicklow and Louth next year, though their first fixture has yet to be confirmed. Kilkenny will be playing all of their games at home, the Leinster Council have said.

The Kildare junior footballers are straight into a Leinster semi-final as there are only six teams competing in the Leinster Junior Football Championship, and they will play the winners of the quarter-final clash between Longford and Carlow.

The Kildare minor hurlers are in Tier 2 of the Leinster Championship next year once again, and they will be taking on Antrim at a neutral venue in their opening game. The other sides they will face in Tier 2 are Laois and Westmeath.
