Three massive games to bring you in the Weekly Inter County Fixtures this week
Week Ending Sunday, June 30th 2019
What a way to end a week. Dublin‘s Senior Footballers collected their ninth consecutive Leinster Championship, and despite the weather nothing could dampen the spirits of the Dublin supporters in Croke Park. A few weeks break now as they prepare for the Super 8 section of the All Ireland Series, and they can now concentrate on that drive for five.
This week, there are three games to bring you details of including the beginning of the first ever Leinster U20 Hurling Championship. And we can’t forget Mick Bohan’s Senior Panel commencing their 2019 Championship this Sunday in the Leinster Senior Ladies Football Final.
Dublin v Offaly
Leinster U20 Hurling Quarter Final
Wednesday, June 26th. 7:30pm
Parnell Park, Dublin
Dublin’s Donnycarney headquarters will make a piece of history this Wednesday evening as it hosts Dublin’s first ever Leinster U20 Hurling Championship Quarter Final. The competition picks up were the old U21 Championship left off.
Managed by Dublin Senior Hurling selector Paul O’Brien, Dublin start at the Quarter Final stage based on grading. Their opponents Offaly have two games under their belts, beating Westmeath and Carlow to qualify for Wednesday’s game. In the other decider Kilkenny face Laois tonight in O’Moore Park. Should Dublin be successful this week, they’ll face Galway in the Semi Final, with Wexford waiting for Kilkenny or Laois.
Throw in is down for 7:30pm in Parnell Park
Dublin v Kildare
Liberty Insurance Intermediate Camogie Championship
Saturday, June 29th. 5:00pm
Parnell’s GAA, Dublin
It’s the next Round for Dave Dunning and his newly formed Intermediate Camogie Panel as they have home advantage for the second time in this year’s Liberty Insurance Championship. After their opening defeat to Kilkenny, they’ll welcome Kildare to Parnells.
Kildare come to Dublin on the back of two losses already to day. A 2-14 to 3-08 loss at the hands of Westmeath in the opening round was followed by 1-22 to 1-06 defeat at the hands of Cork last weekend.
Dublin’s 2-17 to 2-04 loss to Kilkenny was not as one sided as the score would suggest. The girls ran Kilkenny close in the second half with some positive play and made it a one score game. But losing captain Roisin O’Grady to a red card threw a spanner in the works, and the Dubs never recovered.
Same time as last week, a 5:00pm Throw in at Parnells in Coolock.
Dublin v Westmeath
TG4 Leinster Senior Ladies Football Final
Sunday, June 30th. 4:00pm
