Kilkenny intermediates first into the ring to defend their crown

The clock is ticking down slowly to the big day - it's almost like we are waiting for a bomb to go off. We know there won't be any structural damage done on September 6, but fireworks and crunching tackles are sure to take place at Croke Park on All-Ireland final day.

Mulrooney is confident his side will retain their All-Ireland title

Kilkenny beat Galway by two points in last year's final, while Galway's sole win against the black-and-amber in a final was in 2004 when they won a replay. Kilkenny’s Minor hurling manager Richie Mulrooney spoke to the Kilkenny Advertiser about his side’s chances this weekend. “ We are quietly confident of our chances this weekend, we have performed well all year and won’t give up.” With injuries a major worry for most managers Mulrooney is no different. “We are down our star fullback Willie Phelan who has a broken collarbone” he said. “We have replaced him with Danny Kenny and he will do the job very well”, added Mulrooney. Picking the team wont be difficult for the minor manager and his backroom team. “It’s not hard choosing the team. The top 15 for the day will be chosen because at that time they are the best in their positions but the guys not chosen will be disappointed and they should be,” said Mulrooney. Before the minors enter the fray on Sunday Mulrooney will have many words of wisdom for them. “ I will tell them to take the game to their opponents rather than the other way around. To never give up even if they are in control. I will remind them to remain focused at all times.”

With the Liam McCarthy once again safe in the bag for another year, the attentions turned to the All-Ireland u-21 and camogie finals last Sunday. It must be said that a small Kilkenny contingent made the trip up the N9 and N78 to Croker to cheer on the Cats in their quest for honours.

Cleere thinking

I was walking home along Vicar Street, near midnight, on Saturday night a few weeks ago. A car pulled up suddenly beside me and the window was rolled down. “John Cleere,” the driver asked, “do you not know me?”

Kilkenny’s most consistent teams back into the final

The 2009 St Canice’s Credit Union Senior Hurling Final will for the second year in a row be fought out by defending champions Ballyhale Shamrocks and James Stephens. Conditions last Sunday were ideal for good hurling but sadly neither game reached the heights you'd expect at this stage of the competition. The champions Ballyhale put in another Jekyll ‘n’ Hyde performance when they took care of the O'Loughlins challenge.
