The fixtures for the Energia All-Ireland League and Energia Women’s All-Ireland League for the 2019-2020 season see more Friday night fixtures and an increase in the number of double headers across the two tournaments.
Defending Division 1A Champions Cork Constitution will begin their title defence at home to Garryowen while beaten finalists Clontarf travel to Young Munster.
