Carlow has the chance to go top of the table in their Kehoe Cup game this weekend.
Tom Mullaleys men meet Meath in their fourth game and are in a good run of form heading into the tie. Previous week’s victory over Wicklow and Down has the Barrowsiders in second place currently after three games played.
Kildare sits top and has won two from two, with one of those victories coming against Carlow in the Cup’s opening fixture. Kildare had a one-week break before returning to winning form against Wicklow last week, while Carlow will have played four weeks in a row when they welcome Meath to Netwatch Cullen Park.
Meath also have two wins under their belt, and like Kildare are a game behind Carlow. Last year in the Joe McDonagh Cup, Marty Kavanagh put Meath to the test scoring a staggering 1-09 to help his county to a 4-30 to 0-17 win, so that may add a little extra spice to the game.
Kildare will take on Down, at the same time, and if they lose and Carlow win, they will go top of the table with a Meath to take on Kildare the following week while Carlow take a break.
The break won’t last for long though, as Carlow meet Kildare in the league on the 4th of February in what will be an interesting tie considering the Kehoe Cup first round encounter at the start of January.
Entry is free this Sunday in Netwatch for fans to come and show their support and county colours.
