The Carlow Hurling Club Championship final has been decided after two games in Netwatch Cullen Park last weekend.
Mount Leinster Rangers were first to book their spot after defeating Bagnelstown Gaels by five points, avenging their defeat to them at the same stage last year.
St. Mullins secured their chance at back-to-back titles by dispatching Ballinkillen in convincing fashion.
The final now go ahead next Sunday between two teams who have met each other at this very stage six times within the last decade, with the teams drawn on 3 county titles each within that time period.
Speaking to KCLR man of the match against Balinkillen James Doyle stated they have to improve on their semi-final appearance to beat their longtime rivals.
That game is live on KCLR from 4 pm Sunday with thanks to Dan Morrissey & co.
