Soccer: Storm Dennis forces Kilkenny & District League to call off games

It’s set to be another quiet weekend on the soccer front as bad weather has forced the Kilkenny & District League to scrap most of their fixture list.

With Ireland set to be hit by Storm Dennis this weekend the League has made the decision to call off a number of soccer matches. 

All local clubs games at schoolboys, schoolgirls, youths and junior grades have been called off as the country is set to be hit by high winds and heavy rain in the next 24-48 hours.
