St Martin’s v The Fenians
This Sunday at 3.30pm Nowlan Park is the place to be when O’Loughlin Gaels and Carrickshock will contest the highly anticipated senior county final and set out to win the Tom Walsh Cup. This exciting showdown comes from two exciting and nailbiting semi-finals. O’Loughlin’s joint manager Mick Nolan is excited about this Sunday’s showdown. “We can’t wait now, we’re really looking forward to it,” he said. “We’ve put in all the hard work to get here and now we’re just ready.” As for the opposition, Mr Nolan has plenty of respect for them. “They are powered by five county men and have a fine side, however we have our stars too and it should make for a very good and enjoyable final.” Having suffered injuries earlier in the year O’Loughlin’s are back on track. “We are now injury free and have Martin [Comerford] and Brian [Hogan] back to full strength and we are just ready for battle.”

Ballyhale Shamrocks turned Croke Park green as they secured a record-breaking fifth AIB All-Ireland Senior Hurling Club title on St Patrick's Day, thanks to a hard-earned victory over Portumna.
