The South East league is underway with 9 clubs taking part in the competition this year. The competition uses a combination of Bruen and Purcell pairings and is an ideal warm-up for the Cups & Shields competitions later in the year. West Waterford have topped their section after three rounds, with Youghal taking second place. Only two rounds have taken place in Section B and East Cork are out in front on 16 points. Mahon are second with 13 points and Mitchelstown are third on 10 points. Cobh and Fermoy have played just one match each and will no doubt be hoping to catch the leaders as the competition continues.
