Under-21 hurling county final put back

Under-21 hurling county final put back

The Kilkenny under-21 hurling final that had been scheduled to be played in Nowlan Park on Sunday has been put back.

Champions Ballyhale Shamrocks were due to face O'Loughlin Gaels in the Roinn A showdown, but following a tragedy in the O'Loughlin's club, the match has been postponed.

The final will now be played in Nowlan Park on Saturday, December 22 with a 1pm throw-in.

Shamrocks qualified for the final when beating gutsy Dunnamaggin in the semi-final yesterday, while O'Loughlin's beat city rivals, Dicksboro, in their semi the previous week.

Meanwhile, the under-21 Roinn B final has been switched from Saturday to Sunday, and it has been fixed in a new venue.

Bennettsbridge will now face Graigue-Ballycallan in Nowlan Park (1.30pm). This match had originally been fixed for Freshford.
