A number of fixture changes involving Offaly teams this weekend has caused much confusion among supporters. The minor hurlers, U20 footballers and Celtic Challenge hurlers are all in action over two days of action at both O'Connor Park and St. Brendan's Park on Saturday and Sunday.

First up is the Minor hurlers who play Laois in the quarter-final of the Leinster Minor Hurling Championship at 1pm on Saturday, June 16, at Bord na Mona O'Connor Park.

Attention then turns to St. Brendan's Park in Birr on Saturday evening at 5pm where the county's Celtic Challenge U17 hurlers take on Tipperary South.

On Sunday, Bord na Mona O'Connor Park will once again be the setting for the encounter of Offaly's U20 footballers and their Louth counterparts. This game was originally fixed for Saturday but was changed due to a bereavement close to the Louth camp. Throw-in will be at 11am on Sunday morning.
