Kieran’s and CBS for ’Park clash

THE all Kilkenny Leinster colleges senior hurling final will be played on Sunday in Nowlan Park.

THE all Kilkenny Leinster colleges senior hurling final will be played on Sunday in Nowlan Park.

The big clash between champions, St Kieran’s College and city rivals, Kilkenny CBS will be played at 2.30pm.

The game was originally fixed for Saturday, but because a number of players had commitments to do with applications to Third Level colleges, it had to be put back.

The pair never fail to excite when they meet at this level. Kieran’s won the final last year, but were then beaten in the All-Ireland semi-final.

The CBS ended up in the All-Ireland final, but they came off second best after a hugely promising opening half during which they failed to reflect their superiority on the scoreboard.

The winners on Sunday will qualify for the All-Ireland semi-finals, while the losers will go through to the quarter-finals.
