It’s another busy weekend of hurling and football action this weekend on KCLR and KCLR Fanzone.
With the end of the Allianz Hurling and Football Leagues in sight, we’ve got three games down for full commentary this Saturday and Sunday.
Carlow v Antrim
Having topped Division 2A of the National Hurling League, Carlow head to Newry to face Antrim in the Division 2A final with promotion very much at stake. Having gone close in recent times, Carlow know they have a task at hand to beat Antrim close to home but will be going all out to do just that.
Marty Kavanagh in particular reckons his side deserve to be mixing it up in Division 1. Throw-in is 3pm this Saturday afternoon.

Carlow v Wexford
There’s nothing to play for but as high a place in the table as possible as Turlough O’Brien’s footballers welcome Wexford to Netwatch Cullen Park on Sunday in the seventh and final round of the National Football League.
The weekend’s fixtures are effectively a dead rubber here as Wexford and Westmeath are already booked to contest the Division 4 final. With that in mind, Wexford may take the option to ring the changes for their final league clash but Carlow will be pushing for the home victor and cement third place in the division.
Keep an eye on the free-scoring Paul Broderick to make another serious impression with the game underway 1pm Sunday.

Kilkenny v Wexford
For the second time this calendar year, Kilkenny and Wexford will go head-to-head, this time at Nowlan Park in the Division 1 Quarter Final.
Kilkenny earned their spot at home this Sunday with a victory on the road to Dublin last time out and are expected to field a strong side for this weekend’s encounter. With the sides due to meet again in the Leinster championships this summer and having lost out narrowly in January, Davy Fitzgerald’s Wexford side will be out to deliver a big performance on the Cats back door.
Should Kilkenny overcome Wexford, they will likely face Tipperary in the semi-final (not that we’re writing off Offaly’s chances on Sunday or anything). Thrown-in is booked for 4pm Sunday afternoon.
