In what promises to be a cracking day of hurling in Netwatch Cullen Park the Minors of Ballinkillen and MLR face off first at 2.15pm. In what is sure to be an eagerly contested affair, Ballinkillen will go into the final with the shackles off having overcome old rivals Erins Own in the semi. MLR have to be considered favourites but strange things happen in Minor finals and they will have to be on their game to prevail. An exciting hour awaits !!
The Senior bout throws in at 4pm and should have the Carlow hurling public out in force. St. Mullins’ have not recaptured their scintillating form of last season but as hurling’s biggest day arrives you can be sure they will be primed and ready to hold their crown. Rangers come into the final under something of a cloud, their semi-final victory overshadowed by events that have no place on Carlow fields of play. They have been the pace setters so far this year, and have looked extremely impressive since the Championship began last Summer. An intriguing contest is in store for all those who make the trip up and from across the County, let’s hope it delivers the thrills and spills we expect from County Final Day !
