There will be a double hurling feature at Nowlan Park on Sunday week when Kilkenny resume action in the Leinster senior championship.
The unbeaten Cats will entertain All-Ireland champions of 2017, Galway, in a game that could decide a lot in terms of qualifiers for the next phase of the championship. In the corresponding clash in Salthill 12 months ago, the Tribesmen won the day, with a bit to spare.
Later Galway went on to contest the All-Ireland final, losing to Limerick.
Kilkenny have taken maximum points from their two games to date against Dublin and Carlow. If they can claim a third win it could be Leinster final here we come.
The curtain raiser will be the Leinster club senior hurling Division I league final involving two Kilkenny teams.
