The O'Byrne Cup fixture between Wexford and Louth will not take place after the Wee County opted not to play the fixture.

A statement from Leinster GAA this morning confirmed the game, which was due to take place in Hollymount in Wexford on Wednesday, is not going ahead.

They did not give a reason for the cancellation but the game is a dead-rubber.

RTÉ Sport understands Wexford were willing to play the match as part of their preparations for the upcoming league campaign.

However, with it being a midweek fixture and a number of players having upcoming Sigerson Cup matches, exams, or work commitments, Louth have decided not to take part and will give Wexford a walkover.

Westmeath face Kildare, Laois take on Carlow, Meath play Longford and Dublin host Offaly in the remaining fixtures, which will decide the last four in the competition.

Louth will play the winners of the Dublin v Offaly game in a semi-final on Sunday.
