There was a thriller in Borris last night according to Carlow GAA’s Tommy Murphy, the minor hurling championship serving up a belter of a game between Mount Leinster Rangers and Erin’s Own, the sides finishing up level pegging on 2-12 apiece.
The final game in the Carlow minor hurling championship then takes place this evening and we’ll have updates on The Frequency with Ken after 8pm as Ballinkillen and Naomh Eoin go toe-to-toe at the Netwatch Carlow training centre in Fenagh at 8pm. We’ll know the lay of the land following the game for the semi-finalists and pairings for the closing stages of the championship.
In under 21 football, the A championships in Carlow see their semi-final fixtures played out this coming Saturday. Eire Óg are the defending champions and they’ll be putting their title on the line when they face Tinryland at Netwatch Cullen Park at 4pm while at Spellman Park, Kildavin, Palatine take on St. Andrew’s, also at 4pm.
While we previewed the remainder of the football championship fixtures in Carlow yesterday, there is one replay on the cards for Saturday as Old Leighlin and Mount Leinster Rangers will go at it again at 5.30pm, the winners advancing to the semi-final to face Rathvilly on the weekend of the 27th. This year’s other semi-final sees Palatine and Eire Óg line out, a fixture according to Tommy which “has the ingredients to attract the biggest crowd of the year so far”.
The Netwatch Carlow training centre in Fenagh hosts Old Leighlin and Tinryland in the Junior B football quarter final tomorrow evening at 8pm, the winners advancing to face Asca on Saturday week. This coming Saturday sees Rathvilly and Leighlinbridge’s Junior A quarter final replay take place at the training ground at 8pm on Saturday, while at the earlier time of 5.30pm, O’Hanrahans and Naomh Eoin meet in their replay at Spellman Park, Kildavin, at 5.30pm.
Thanks to Carlow GAA’s Tommy Murphy for the updates.
