Across five weeks, John Kiely’s men will play two weeks in a row, followed by a one week rest and finish with two more successive games.

Similar to last years format, the top two teams will play in the Munster final, with the third-placed team entering into the All-Ireland series.

It’s understood that the dates and times are likely to be confirmed by the Munster Council in November.
