It was decided that six teams will compete and to ensure that each team gets more than one match, it was decided that first-round losers playoff for a place in the semi-finals. Hurling meeting at start of April 1969 decided that Schoolboys, U-14 and Juvenile hurling Championship would be 13-a-side and 30 minutes each half. It is worth noting that in March 1969 the Fr. Manning Gaels club was formed by the merging of the Éire Óg (Drumlish) and Ballinamuck clubs. We do not find any record of Ballinamuck competing in the above Juvenile Hurling Championship when action begins.

Club name(s) displayed are those used at the time of the final, to preserve that historic record.
