The 2016 Inter County season gets underway this week with two games in the Bord na Móna Walsh Cup hurling tournament. First up Kilkenny take on DIT on Wednesday evening under lights at the MW Hire Training Centre at Dunmore with a 7.30pm throw in. There is limited parking available at the Centre. Please follow the Car Park signs and co-operate with stewards and gardai particularly at the end of the game. Admission is €10 for adults and €5 Students and Pensioners. Under 16’s are free. As this is the Leinster GAA “Accident Tournament” passes do not apply. It is expected that the Kilkenny team will comprise predominantly of the under 21 side for Wednesday’s game. Kilkenny then travel to Birr on Sunday to take on Offaly at 2pm in the final group match. Offaly have already had a comfortable victory over DIT in the first game. Group winners progress to the semi-finals on Sunday 24th with the final scheduled for Croke Park on Saturday 30th January.
