Kilkenny entertain 2013 All Ireland Champions Clare in Nowlan Park next Sunday. Although Clare currently share the bottom of the table with Kilkenny they can still qualify for the Quarter-Finals with a win over Kilkenny and a Galway defeat of Dublin in Parnell Park. Kilkenny are destined to play in the Relegation Playoff on Sunday 29th with either a home tie with Dublin or a toss for venue with Clare. In a novel arrangement the Clare team and supporters are travelling to Nowlan Park by train this Sunday.
Reduced price tickets for the game at €10 are available until Saturday evening from the usual Supermarket outlets. The Kilkenny team will be announced as usual after training on Friday evening.
