It is a big weekend in the JJ Kavanagh and Sons Carlow Senior Hurling Championship as the semi-finals take place in Netwatch Cullen Park.
First up at 2.15pm, county champions Mount Leinster Rangers will be firm favourites to advance to yet another decider when they take on Bagenalstown Gaels in the day’s opener.
From 4pm on Scoreline on KCLR, you can hear from Bagenalstown Gaels manager Gavin Nolan on how he plans to get the better of the ever-dominant Rangers.
At 5pm, Dublin native and new Mount Leinster Rangers manager Paul O’Brien will outline how he hopes to navigate his team into next month’s final.
The second semi-final pits Ballinkillen against St Mullins at 4pm in Carlow town.
2020 finalists Ballinkillen were victorious when the teams met in the league campaign but the 2021 runners up St Mullins will have hopes of righting that wrong.
We’ll be speaking to the St Mullins manager at 2pm as they look to move one step closer towards sealing the coveted prize.
At 3pm, Ballinkillen boss Eoin Larkin will catch up with us ahead of the match and will further reflect on the departure of Brian Cody as Kilkenny senior hurling manager.
Make sure to tune in from 2pm on Saturday for Carlow and Kilkenny’s number one sports show.
