Old Leighlin manager Paul Carthy says the Carlow Championship is cut throat with little room for error.
Old Leighlin play Tinryland on Sunday afternoon, and Speaking to KCLR, Paul who is a Wexford native says there is a huge difference in intensity between the Carlow and Wexford Championships.
“The Championship in Carlow is cut throat.
It’s a little bit easier down in Wexford, you can afford to make a mistake or two, but in Carlow there is no forgiveness for losing your first game. There’s 8 Teams in Carlow, back home it’s 12 teams so as I’d say a lot of teams down in Wexford would have lost three games and they are still in the hunt for qualification.
“So there is a huge difference in intensity in the Championship because of the lack of room for mistakes in the first match,” he said.
The winner of Old Leighlins clash with Tinryland will finish second place in a group which Palatine have already confirmed top spot.
