Kilkenny are back on the road next Sunday with a trip to Thurles to take on Tipperary at 2pm. Both teams failed to collect any points in their outings last weekend and will be hoping to get their league campaigns back on track. As the Allianz league enters its final rounds the battle for much needed points heats up and the outcome of this encounter will be vital for whoever can claim the two points this game has to offer. Tickets are available in usual outlets (Centra and Supervalu), pre-purchasing tickets will ensure a saving of €5 and faster entry to the ground on the day.
Next Sunday will also see St Kieran’s College contest the Top Oil Leinster Senior Colleges Final in Portlaise at 12pm, the opposition will be Colaiste Eoin from Dublin. Colaiste Eoin overcame Kilkeny CBS by one point to claim their spot in the final, while St Kieran’s overcame Dublin North. Both teams will be out for the win, which will secure a semi-final spot for the victor while the losser will have to contest an All-Ireland quarter final. On Saturday Castlecomer CS will contest the Leinster Colleges ‘B’ Final against Colaiste Choilm, Tullamore in Carlow IT at noon.By Mary Morgan Sun 17th Feb
