Tipperary defeated Kilkenny in an entertaining Allianz NHL played at the third attempt in Semple Stadium, Thurles before an attendance of over 20,000 supporters. The game was evenly contested throughout but the turning moment came before the break when a Kilkenny goal chance from Aidan Fogarty was blocked by Brendan Cummins and sent down the line and dispatched to the net by Eoin Kelly.
The game between Kilkenny and Cork will get a quick analysing next week due to the clash of Ballyhale Shamrocks and Portumna, the two best club teams in recent years. If Kilkenny and Tipperary were the two teams most neutrals wanted to see in last year’s All-Ireland final, these are the two that everyone wanted for a club final appearance.
The Kilkenny senior hurlers finally got their year up and running with a hard earned league victory over Offaly last Sunday in Nowlan Park.
The GAA's good intention of kick-starting the National Hurling League with a glamour tie between the All-Ireland finalists Kilkenny and Tipperary under lights at Semple Stadium has turned from a good PR exercise into a GAA disaster.
Kilkenny intermediates’ great victory over Dublin after extra time last Saturday afternoon means once again it's a clean sweep of provincial titles. This achievement in itself would satisfy most hurling counties, but in Kilkenny the players are only too aware that their greatness is judged on their ability to land All-Ireland titles. Pressure it may be but that's the reality you face when you pull on the famous black and amber shirt. This Sunday, both the seniors and minors head to Croker hoping they can get the job done which would give them a tilt at All-Ireland glory.
It has been one hell of a roller coaster ride for Kilkenny fans since 1998. Lucky enough we've had more ups than downs during that period. It's a staggering statistic that during that time it was only twice that the Black and Amber didn’t feature.
Large crowds attended Ballyragget and Piltown on Thursday evening for the senior and junior football county finals that were played under lights for the first time. Exhibiting a high standard of play, the games saw fine second half performances deliver the respective JJ Kavanagh & Sons titles to the sides scheduled to meet in the county senior hurling league final forty-eight hours later.
O’Loughlin Gaels, minus the services of Martin Comerford, recorded a comprehensive victory over Tullaroan as the St Canice’s Credit Union senior hurling quarter-finals began in earnest last Saturday afternoon in Lachtain Park, Freshford.
Kilkenny may have written themselves into the history books this year by becoming the first team to complete the clean sweep, but the men who were involved in creating history found themselves going back to grassroots last weekend as the local championships commenced. Some of the media recently complained that we didn't know how to celebrate winning and that our homecoming party was very lethargic. I'd say to hell with the begrudgers, the players know we think the world of them and also respect the fact that time moves on. The county men who soldiered so well together, also respect that while they were away on county duty, club men they grew up with have been plugging away in preparation for last weekend. There is no doubt that special bonds are formed during the intercounty season, however, once you go back and put on the club colours - friendship rightly goes out the window as teams go in search of success in their respective championships.
