Kilkenny County Board PRO Seamus Reade says that the weather conditions along with comfort for spectators was taken into consideration when Nowlan Park was chosen as the venue for Sunday’s Walsh Cup Final against Galway.
The Cats and the Tribesmen go head-to-head in the final winter fixture before next weekend’s Allianz National Hurling League opener against Waterford.
“We would be conscious obviously of the weather conditions at the moment,” said Reade on Tuesday night’s The Way It Is.
“So taking into account the comfort of fans and that, we felt that Nowlan Park was appropriate. We have almost 18,000 seats there. Much of that undercover so the fans can turn up in great comfort to see the game and the pitch there is very very good as it always has been, so we are looking forward to a big occasion on Sunday.”
“All the funds raised go towards current and ex-players who have some hardship in their lives and that so it’s a well worth cause, well worth supporting.”
Kilkenny v Galway will be live on KCLR this Sunday afternoon at 2pm.
