Sligo to face Offaly in Christy Ring Cup

Sligo will face Offaly in their final group game of next year’s Christy Ring Cup.

The Yeats County are competing in the Christy Ring Cup for the first time after winning the 2019 Nicky Rackard Cup.

Offaly, on the other hand, were relegated from the Joe McDonagh Cup last year and will also be competing in the third tier of the hurling championship for the first time.

Sligo will open their campaign with a home fixture against Wicklow before facing trips to Derry and Offaly.

Meanwhile, Leitrim and Donegal have both been drawn in Group One of the 2020 Nicky Rackard Cup.

Leitrim, much like their north-west neighbours, is competing in a competition for the first time, having gained promotion to the Nicky Rackard Cup after this year’s Lory Meagher Cup success, and they will open their campaign at home to Longford.

Donegal, who were relegated from the Christy Ring, will begin their challenge away to Armagh before hosting Leitrim in their second group game.

Leitrim will finish the group away to Armagh, while Donegal faces a trip to Longford in their final group game.
