Louth Hurlers will open their 2018 Allianz National Hurling League Division 3A campaign with a trip to Roscommon.
Philip O'Brien's men will travel to Dr. Hyde Park for a 12:30pm throw-in on Sunday, January 28, with their first home match against Tyrone the following week.
The Wee County endured a torrid league campaign in 2017, losing all six matches, and they will be hoping for improved fortunes this time around.
Nicky Rackard Cup group opponents Monaghan, Longford and Warwickshire are also in Division 3A and Louth will finish their league campaign with matches against the trio. Warwickshire will visit Darver, while the final two matches will go ahead in Longford and Castleblaney respectively.
