Tickets are on sale for Kilkenny’s All-Ireland senior camogie championship third-round clash with Tipperary this coming Saturday evening.
If Kilkenny is to guarantee progress to the knockouts, the defending All-Ireland champions will have to make sure of a win against an in-form Tipp side who currently top Kilkenny’s group.
A poor result and they could face an early All-Ireland exit, but our latest KCLR Electric Player of the Week Denise Gaule has been telling us the side are keen to make amends for recent performances on home soil.
That game throws at 6 pm on Saturday evening, live on KCLR, and will be followed immediately by the draw for the All-Ireland senior camogie championship quarter-finals and semi-finals.
Depending on the outcome, Kilkenny could be heading to Croke Park the same weekend as the All-Ireland senior hurling semi-finals, or go straight to this year’s All-Ireland camogie semi-finals which are being staged for the first time in UPMC Nowlan Park, or they could be out entirely.
The finals are now set for the JJ Kavanagh and Sons Junior League. Windgap is through after a one-point victory over St Lachtain’s and they will take on Tull-oh-her Ross-ber-con who bested Danesfort 18 points to 2-10
