Joe Brennan is a vital man in the St Patrick's attack
Kilkenny champions, St Patrick's (Ballyragget) will be heading to Limerick for the All-Ireland semi-final in the intermediate club hurling championship, it has been confirmed.
The game final against Tooreen (Mayo) has been fixed for the Gaelic Grounds, Limerick (2pm) on Saturday, January 20.
Extra-time will be played, if necessary.
St Patrick's will be without towering defender, Geoff Morrissey, who damaged a shoulder in the Leinster final win over Glenealy (Wicklow). He is expected to have surgery shortly to correct the problem, and he will be out of action for months.
Better news is that star forwards, Kevin Kelly and Joe Brennan, who suffered knocks in the Leinster final will be fit to play, as should fellow attacker, Barry Staunton, who missed two matches in the provincial championship because of injury.
