A further two teams have withdrawn from the Carlow Junior Hurling Championship.
Following Carlow Town’s decision to not compete despite being in the draw for the championship, there were six teams remaining in the competition.
That is no longer the case, however, as Palatine and Naomh Eoin have confirmed that they will not take any further part this summer.
Both sides had suffered three defeats from their opening three games and were only separated by scoring difference at the bottom of the table.
The four teams remaining are Burren Rangers, Naomh Brid, Naomh Molling and Mount Leinster Rangers.
Action in the junior championship continues this weekend with leaders Naomh Molling taking on Naomh Brid on Sunday at 12pm.
