Netwatch Cullen Park is looking pretty toasty, according to one Twitter user today.
Twitter user Michael Griffin posted the photo below on Tuesday morning.
“The hosepipe ban being well adhered to in Carlow anyway ahead of Saturday evening’s @Carlow_GAA v @LimerickCLG Preliminary All Ireland Hurling Championship Quarter Final tie, here’s Netwatch Dr. Cullen Park looking errrr… burnt to a crisp.”
Weather conditions continue to wreak havoc on pitches and courses around the country with parts of Kilkenny and Carlow severely affected by drought. The “hosepipe ban” has now been extended out of the Greater Dublin area to include Kilkenny and Carlow, but Carlow’s home ground should be in great condition for Saturday evening.
Carlow face Limerick at Netwatch Cullen Park this Saturday evening following their Joe McDonagh Cup win in Croke Park on Sunday.
Should Carlow advance, they’ll play the winners of Kilkenny and Galway in the All-Ireland senior hurling quarter final later this month.
We’ll have live commentary and analysis of Carlow v Limerick on Saturday evening from 7pm with thanks to the Step House Hotel, Borris.
