Hurling is back, football is back and now club camogie is back for Kilkenny and Carlow sides.
Granted, it’s the first week of 2022 but the 2020 All-Ireland championships only concluded at the weekend with Offaly’s St. Rynagh’s taking the intermediate crown while Raharney of Westmeath are junior champions.
This weekend, however, marks the start of the 2021 AIB Leinster club camogie championships with four sides locally in action across Saturday and Sunday.
Kilkenny’s intermediate champions Barrow Rangers are on the road to Laois as they face hosts Camross in the quarter-final stages of the 2021 competition.
Long-standing Carlow senior champions Myshall will have home advantage for their Leinster quarter-final clash with Kilrush of Wexford. Throw-in at the Naomh Eoin grounds is at 1.30pm.
Sunday’s a big one again in Carlow and Kilkenny.
Junior champions Mhuinebheag will be flying the Carlow flag in Kildare when they meet Kilcock at half past one. At time of writing a venue is yet to be confirmed but throw-in is also scheduled for 1.30pm.
At the same in Palmserstown, Dicksboro welcome Dublin’s St. Jude’s to Kilkenny for their Leinster senior club semi-final and you’ll be able to hear that game live on KCLR and Scoreline this weekend.
