Shamrocks Leinster game brought forward to Saturday

Shamrocks captain Michael Fennelly and his team will be in action on Saturday

Kilkenny champions, Shamrocks of Ballyhale will resume their chase for Leinster club senior hurling honours in Nowlan Park on Saturday.

Originally the Cats has been booked for a Sunday date against St Martin’s of Wexford in the semi-finals. The Slaneysiders asked for a change because their senior camoige team is also in Leinster club action next weekend.

Shamrocks had no problem playing on Saturday, and so the game was brought forward 24 hours.

The two other Kilkenny representatives in the Leinster club championships, Tullaroan (intermediate) and Conahy Shamrocks (junior) will also be playing on Saturday at home venues.
