This Sunday Kilkenny welcome Dublin to Nowlan Park for a top of the table clash. Both teams plus Waterford are on 6 points and all have qualified for the quarter-finals. What's at stake on Sunday is our likely opposition in the quarter-finals. If Kilkenny win they will most likely play Offaly or Wexford in the quarters whereas a loss to Dublin would put Kilkenny in 3rd place in the table and a tie against either Clare or Limerick. In any case it is a huge leap from this time last year as they faced up to Clare in a do or die game to retain Div 1A status.
Supporters are again reminded that construction work continues at Nowlan Park and the Terrace remains closed. All three seated stands will be open. Supporters are again encouraged to purchase tickets in advance to avail of €5 discount and to avoid queues on Sunday.

In a thrilling encounter in Pairc Ui Rinn on Saturday night Kilkenny snatched victory with an injury time point from John Power. Both sides had periods of dominance and pointless Cork played some terrific hurling over the 70 minutes. But it was Kilkenny's "Never Say Die" attitude that won out in the end. After the full round of games this weekend Kilkenny find themselves in second position in the table behind Dublin and ahead of Waterford with all three teams on 6 points. All three have qualified for the quarter-finals. The fourth quarter-finalist from Div 1A will be either Tipperary or Galway with all to play for next weekend. Kilkenny and Dublin go head to head in Nowlan Park with the prize on offer a likely quarter -final against Offaly or Wexford. A loss to Dublin is likely to pit us against either LimericK or Clare in the quarter-final.
