Kilkenny can leave the Dubs singing the blues

image preview

In recent years Semple Stadium has become the spiritual home for the National Hurling League Final. Geographically it probably suited all participating counties. However with the Dubs reaching the final for the first time since 1946 the authorities in HQ have in one way made a constructive effort to attract a big crowd by holding it in Croke Park only to shoot themselves in the foot with the admission fee of €25.

Under-16 girls attempt to book All-Ireland final place

Kilkenny Under-16 Camogie girls under the management team of Paddy Kelly, TJ Bryan and David Hogan are on the verge of an All-Ireland final place as they prepare for Saturday’s All-Ireland semi-final encounter with Clare in Killmallock Co Limerick — 1pm throw-in.

The authorities in the GAA will be rubbing their hands in delight after last week’s National Hurling League results. The outcome of these games have seen the league table tighten up to such an extent that after four rounds of action there are still six teams left in the hunt for honours. The only two teams out of the equation are Wexford and Offaly, it now looks certain that one of these will drop back to Division 2.

It’s a pity really that after three rounds of the National Hurling League the main talking point is not of the action but of the low attendance’s. Everyone has their own views as to why this is happening, some experts are blaming the Saturday night flood light games. This theory doesn't wash with me because the facts are that the biggest crowds for league matches this year in either code were for games under lights.

Hurlers travel to Cork in confidence

After two high scoring and trouble-free wins over Wexford and Offaly, the Galway senior hurlers face Cork in Páirc Uí Chaoimh this Sunday at 2.30pm.

Gaels blow away Northern challenge to reach their first club final

Their hard fought victory over Loughgiel Shamrocks of Antrim at Parnell Park last Saturday now offers them a tilt a club hurling's highest honour.

U-21 hurlers face a battle in Semple Stadium

Even as late as yesterday afternoon the storm over the exceedingly unfair fixing of the All-Ireland u-21 final between Galway and Tipperary for Semple Stadium in Thurles on Saturday evening at 7pm had not fully abated and Galway will fulfil the fixture under protest.
