DNR Kirwans League 2019/2020
The following is an update regarding the Kirwans League for Novices, Inter Bs, Inter As and Masters for 2019/2020.
Unfortunately, like many other activities, this year’s tournament was stopped before its completion due to the Covid 19 pandemic.
At a recent DNR/Kirwans League committee meeting (via Zoom) it was felt that the fairest way to deal with the completion of this year’s competition would be to put the remainder of the competition for this year on hold until such time as it may be finalised. It is envisaged that this could be well into 2021 with the final being perhaps held as usual during May 2021. However, the committee will keep this under review.
The committee feels that this is the fairest way of dealing with the situation. Teams which had been doing well in their various sections would not lose out. The competition will also be completed under the Rules and Conditions applicable at September, 2019. This arrangement will also mean that Master Points earned in the 2019-20 season will not be taken into account in determining eligibility to complete the league in 2021.
The committee hopes that these arrangements will be seen as fair and equitable to all and that the completion of the competition will enable us to have a well deserved celebration after our long period of abstinence. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact your section coordinator.
