The dates for the AIB club championships have been announced, and the provincial opposition in Leinster for the Dublin champions will be Rathnew or St.Patrick’s of Wicklow.

With St Jude’s still to discover who their opponents will be in the Dublin final, with Ballyboden St Enda’s and Kilmacud Crokes having drawn twice in the last two weeks, time is running out for the county decider to be played before the quarter-final date of November 8.

The Dublin hurling champions, still to be decided from the quarter-finalists of O’Toole’s, St.Patrick’s, St. Vincent’s, Craobh Ciarain, Kilmacud Crokes, Lucan Sarsfields, Ballyboden and Crumlin, will face the Wexford or Kilkenny champions on November 15.
