In what promises to be one of the most hotly contested Senior Championships in years, almost every Club involved will fancy their chances of taking home the silverware come October. While a good start is important, Conlon Cup holders Rathvilly proved last year that it isn’t crucial. The weekend’s action really is mouthwatering fare as the local derby between OL and Bbranna gets proceedings underway on Sat. eve followed by Rathvilly and Kildavin-Clonegal who are many punters’ outside bet for glory. Group 1 will be a dogfight from start to finish with all teams capable of upsetting each other on any given day.
League champions MLR have proved they are a match for anyone and if they put their minds to it could end up with a double triumph come the final shakeup. Tinryland will have been hurt badly by the loss of Shane Redmond who was having a standout season for his County. Yet the hoops will be very dangerous opponents, buoyed by their recent Minor success and particularly if taken for granted.
Later Sunday evening sees Palatine and Éire Óg face off in what has been billed as the ‘match of the weekend’. These two old foes have a history of producing fireworks and while a younger generation are coming through the ranks of both Clubs, you can be guaranteed that nothing will be lost in the transition.
Lots to savour so make sure to make it to Netwatch Cullen Park this weekend because every time you go you are supporting Carlow GAA.
