Louth game set for Saturday as this weekend's club fixtures undergo changes

Louth's Allianz National Football League fixture against Westmeath has been fixed for the Gaelic Grounds, Drogheda, at 2pm on Saturday.

That means there won't be a full programme of club games in the county this weekend - as was hoped. 

The senior leagues were due to get underway last Friday night, through to Sunday, but only a handful of those matches will now be played, with the finals of the subsidiary competitions taking place instead.

Paddy Sheelan Cup final - Dreadnots vs St. Mochta's, Saturday, March 30, at 6:30pm in Clogherhead 

Paddy Sheelan Shield final - Kilkerley Emmets vs Naomh Máirtín, Friday, March 29, at 8pm Kilkerley

Kevin Mullen Shield final - Na Piarsaigh vs Glen Emmets, Saturday, March 30, at 7:15pm in Stabannon

Kevin Mullen Plate final - Westerns vs Roche Emmets, Saturday, March 30, at 4:45pm in Reaghstown

Meanwhile, in Division One, Cooley Kickhams vs Sean O'Mahony's and St. Bride's vs Mattock Rangers will go ahead on Sunday morning, while there is a full round of Division 3B fixtures. 

The other clubs' league openers are now set for Tuesday night, although that is pending Louth not reaching the Division Three final, by beating Westmeath this weekend.
