Semis back on in 2012
Semi-finals are to be re-introduced in Division One of the National Football and Hurling Leagues.
But the changes, approved by Central Council, will not take affect until 2012, as it
will take a final decision at next April's Congress to effect the proposal. The new system will not apply in the lower divisions.
For the past three seasons in football, and two in hurling, there have been lo league semi-finals, with the top two teams qualifying for the final.
