It is an action-packed weekend of sport here at KCLR with no less than four live games covered
One of those games is Carlow making their bow in the Tailteann Cup against Tipperary on Sunday afternoon.
Ahead of Sunday, Carlow GAA has been distributing match and raffle tickets to schools around the county with free admission for all Under 16s this weekend as they hope to build a festival-type atmosphere for the GAA’s new second-tier football competition.
Among the prizes for students on the day will be new SETU Carlow jersey and a set of O’Neill’s footballs for their school.

Carlow GAA Pro Ger Doyle has been speaking to Scoreline and says the spirit of the championship, the good weather and a rapid Carlow side will make for a spectacular Sunday for fans wishing to attend
“Carlow is completely committed to making a success of it and it is something we can aspire to win. Carlow has prepared very well for this. I think they have every chance of turning over Tipperary on Sunday.”
“We are hoping to generate a good atmosphere. This is what we want this time of year, the good weather, championship football, it is what we grew up watching.”
“Hopefully, the kids will come and enjoy the experience and witness a Carlow win.”
That game throws in at 2 pm with thanks to Barrow Training & Consultancy
