Action Returns To Club Scene Next Weekend

Thursday, 25 May 2017

THE second round of the Tipperary Water County Senior Hurling championship will get underway this weekend with a full round of fixtures in all groups.

 

Group 1

First round winners Kiladangan and Loughmore are kept apart. Kiladangan who beat Borris-Ileigh will revisit Dolla for a clash with James Barry's Upperchurch Drombane. Kiladangan will be slight favourites. Meanwhile Semple Stadium will house the meeting of Borris-Ileigh v Loughmore Castleiney. Loughmore are favourites to advance.

 

Group 2

Ballina lost to Clonoulty Rossmore in round one but will have an earlier start this Friday evening to get back to winning ways when they face neighbours Portroe at Nenagh. Throw in 7.30p.m.. Ballina are expected to win. Then on Sunday Clonoulty face Drom Inch at Semple Stadium. Drom should advance and make it two wins out of two.

 

Group 3

Two games to be played on Sunday but twenty kilometres apart. Kilruane MacDonaghs will take on Thurles Sarsfields at Templemore at 3.30p.m. Sarsfields are expected to win but this will be a close fought encounter. Remember two years ago when Kilruane pushed the county champions all the way in the semi final. The other game should be an easy one for Nenagh Eire Og who take on Carrick Swans at Holycross.

 

Group 4

Another group where two first round winners face one another. Here Killenaule take on Eire Og Annacarty at Cashel, throw in 3.30pm. Killenaule are expected to win. Earlier in the day Burgess face Mullinahone at Cashel. Burgess could survive here.
