Kilkenny camogie is all set for a cracker in Croke Park this Sunday!

Ann Downey's senior camogie team will head to Croker for a showdown with Cork as they bid to bring the O'Duffy Cup back to Kilkenny for a 14th time.

In what is now one of the most fascinating rivalries in all of Gaelic Games and Irish sport, the senior All-Ireland final will see Kilkenny and Cork do battle for the third year in a row. Kilkenny won the 2016 decider but the Rebels prevailed with an injury-time winning point from Julia White to claim a record 27th All-Ireland in last September’s epic final.

The Cats gained some revenge by defeating Cork in the National League Division 1 Final in April – once more with just a single point separating the sides. 

Six sides will take to the hallowed turf of Croke Park for the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Championships Finals on Sunday for the Senior, Intermediate and Premier Junior title deciders.

Tickets are on sale for Sunday’s triple-header, with substantial discounts for adults, children, families, OAPs and students as well as for clubs and large group bookings. Full ticketing information is available at www.camogie.ie/tickets.asp
