It may not be the busiest of weekends on the Kilkenny GAA front, but it certainly promises to be an eventful one.
While there are several games in the Duggan Steel U15 Football Championships on Sunday, all eyes will firmly be on Mullinavat’s Leinster Intermediate Football Championship semi-final with Fethard St Mogues on Saturday afternoon.
Michael Aylward’s side take on the Wexford intermediate champions at 1.30pm in John Locke Park, Callan, with a place in the decider up for grabs.
Following impressive victories over Bracknagh and Shandonagh at the same venue in their last two games, the Kilkenny club will be hoping to advance to the provincial final for the first time since 2019 when they were defeated by Louth’s Mattock Rangers.
We will have full live commentary of that game on KCLR’s Kilkenny frequency.
Elsewhere, there are two finals taking place at the same time on Saturday.
Blacks and Whites will be hoping to add to their impressive trophy haul (3 pieces of silverware for their junior side in total in 2022) when they go up against Emeralds in the JJ Kavanagh and Sons U21 E Hurling Championship final in Páirc Lachtain.
In the Revise.ie U19 B Hurling Championship final, Graigue Ballycallan, who claimed the U21 B crown last weekend, face Glenmore in Thomastown.
Amidst the underage football action on Sunday, there is the small matter of the JJ Kavanagh and Sons U21 A Hurling Championship decider between Thomastown and Mooncoin.
In the lead up to that clash, we’ll be speaking to Thomastown manager Ken Walsh and his Mooncoin counterpart Diarmaid Mackey on Scoreline on Saturday.
The final itself will also be live on KCLR from 1pm with Brendan Hennessy and Adrian Ronan on commentary duty from UPMC Nowlan Park.
