It’s a busy week of GAA in Kilkenny with the senior, U20 and minor sides all in action in key Leinster championship games.
As always, all three matches will be live on KCLR along with some insightful interviews and expert analysis.
On Sunday at 1pm, Kilkenny make the trip north to take on Antrim in the third round of the Leinster Senior Hurling Championship.
Victory for the Cats would see them move one-step closer towards the provincial decider following an unbeaten start to the campaign.
The sides played out a close affair earlier this year at the same venue with Lyng’s men eventually coming out on top.
Oisin Langan and two-time All-Ireland winner Michael Walsh will be on commentary duty with thanks to Laharts.
Our match coverage with eight-time All-Ireland winner Aidan Fogarty, which will begin at 12.30pm and conclude at 3pm, is kindly sponsored by Country Style Foods.
Our build-up to that clash will begin on Friday evening when Antrim legend Terence ‘Sambo’ McNaughton gives his county’s perspective ahead of the visit of the Leinster champions.
On Saturday at 4pm, Kilkenny U20 manager Mark Dowling speaks openly about his frustrations with new rules that have hampered his team selection during a busy period, while we’ll continue our look ahead to Sunday’s senior match with KCLR analyst Michael Walsh.
On Wednesday evening, Dowling’s U20 team welcome Wexford to UPMC Nowlan Park for the semi-final of the Leinster championship with live commentary on KCLR at 6.45pm.
