Wexford are expected to open their Allianz Division 1, Group B campaign at home to Laois in three weeks’ time followed by a trip to face Clare in Ennis on Saturday, May 15.

They will learn their Leinster quarter-final opponents - Antrim, Dublin, or Laois - on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland on Tuesday morning.
