We’ve reached the final round in this year’s provincial Senior Hurling Championship, and after the weekend’s victory over Offaly, Dublin have secured their championship status for 2019. That said they still have to travel to Pearse Stadium this Saturday evening to take on the reigning All Ireland Champions Galway for one more game. the Dubs ran Kilkenny and Wexford very close and it will be interesting to see the outcome of this weekend’s game. Throw in is 7:00pm in Salthill.
Leinster Senior Football Championship Semi Finals
It’s back to Croke Park for Jim Gavin’s Senior Football panel in the hope of creating more memories for the faithful fans as the Dubs take on Longford in the Semi Finals of the Delaney Cup competition. Dublin are on staying course to secure their eight consecutive provincial title, but they’ll have to beat Longford first.
So there you have it. Some fantastic games to whet the appetite. Make sure you get out there and support all teams involved.
