You can order your match tickets for Dublin’s Leinster Senior Hurling Championship round games
While the outcome of last year’s Leinster Senior Hurling Championship wasn’t the one most Dublin fans wanted, there’s no denying that they were served a real exciting contest as Dublin traversed the round stages under the guidance of Pat Gilroy.
Dublin finished second from bottom in the table. They missed qualification to the final, but secured their provincial status. In doing so they avoided the drop to the Joe McDonagh Cup. But the journey they brought everyone on was the signs of things to come for this Dublin set up. Fast forward twelve months and we’re well into the reign of new Dublin manager Matty Kenny. We’ve been treated treated to some fantastic competitive hurling in the Allianz League. The lads finished top of the table in Division 1B. The only blip along the way was a defeat to Galway in Round 3. The highlights were definitely their 1-26 to 4-15 win over Waterford in Parnell Park and of course their Quarter Final victory over Tipperary in Semple Stadium.
With the panel losing out to All Ireland Champions and eventual League Champions Limerick in the Semi Final it was into the long break ahead of the provincial championship, with a smattering of Club Championship action along the way.
It’s time to look forward to the 2019 competition
But now, with only a few weeks to go, it’s time to prepare for the action once again. Saturday, May 11th, Mattie Kenny will get his first Leinster Championship game under his belt as they face the kings of hurling Kilkenny in Nowlan Park. It’s a repeat of last year’s Leinster opener only this time the Dubs are away from home. And any Dublin fan that witnessed the opening game last year will have left Parnell Park wondering how Dublin left the victory behind them. A Liam Blanchfield goal at the death of the game secured the win for Kilkenny. Will the Dubs prevail this time around?
A week later Dublin will entertain Davy Fitzgerald’s Wexford hurlers in Parnell Park. A two week break will see them then travel to Netwatch Cullen Park to face Carlow. And their round robin competition finishes with a home tie against Galway.
