Kilkenny manager Brian Cody says games are going to come thick and fast now once the club scene gets underway in over a weeks time.
The Kilkenny and Carlow club competitions get underway and will run up until October before the intercounty action gets underway wrapping up just before Christmas.
Brian told KCLR it’s going to be a very exciting few months:
Speaking to KCLR Live he said “With regards to the intercounty scene, it’s going to be winter essentially and coming up towards Christmas where the All Ireland Final is going to be and it’s going to bring huge excitement for sure”.
“Before that, I mean a hugely important part of the whole thing, the club scene is kicking off in a couple of weeks time and that’s going to be short and snappy too and matches coming thick and fast and giving everybody a chance to get out there, and it’s very important that the club scene is going to be played because that’s where 98% it seems of players take part in that so that’s going to be fantastic for everybody”.
The first games of the club season locally take place on Friday week the 24th of July.
In Kilkenny, the Junior Hurling League & Championships get the ball rolling while in Carlow the Senior Hurling Championship starts with Naomh Eoin and St Mullins clashing in the first round at 7.30pm.
