Kilkenny will have home advantage for their Leinster senior camogie championship final this weekend.
The defending champions face Dublin, a repeat of last year’s decider, and with the Cats having made the trip to Laois Hire O’Moore Park this time last year, it’s Dublin who will be heading for UPMC Nowlan Park this coming Saturday afternoon.
Kilkenny made light work of Westmeath on Saturday in a very one-sided victory over the midland side to tee up another Leinster final.
Seamus Kelly’s intermediates also came through their provincial quarter-final with a 4-24 to 1-1 win over Dublin and will see their semi-final clash against Wexford as the first part of a doubleheader at Kilkenny GAA HQ, that game underway at 12.30pm.
Speaking to KCLR after his side’s win on Saturday, senior manager Brian Dowling says he was just happy to be getting game time this year.
“We want to play in the final. We won’t have a game for a couple of weeks after that. We’re not playing until June 10th and we haven’t played since the 25th of March so we want to use these games and we’re going to have Dublin later on in the group stage as well.”
“We had them in the league, a very tough game, and we know it’s (Saturday’s final) going to be tough.”
“It was great to get the game as it’s hard to get challenge games this time of year. We’ll focus are minds on that one, get a good recovery in (this week) and be ready go next Saturday.”
You can hear Kilkenny v Dublin live on KCLR this Saturday afternoon from 2.30pm.
