Following last weekend's club action the Kilkenny senior panel re-assembled this week in preparation for the Allianz Hurling League Semi-Final versus Galway in Limerick on Sunday. They will have a final training session on Friday night after which the team will be named.
In the meanwhile supporters are urged to purchase tickets in advance to avail of €5 discount. Tickets are Stand specific and given the high number of Season Tickets spread over the 4 counties, supporters wishing to get seats in the Mackey Stand(Covered) in particular are urged to act immediately as these are likely to be sold out in advance. Fans are also reminded that children will require a ticket (€5) for this fixture. We have also been advised of a potential difficulty on the roads on the way to Limerick on Sunday. There will be a Vintage Rally in the environs of Tipperary Town and this may cause traffic delays in the early afternoon. Perhaps travelling on the M7 from Borris in Ossory might be a good option.read more
