Big weekend of hurling finals looms large

Thursday, 28 September 2017

BOTH the Molloy Environmental Systems Senior and Intermediate Hurling Championship finals are down for decision this Sunday with the double header expected to draw a big crowd to Bord Na Mona O'Connor Park.
Brosna Gaels and Ballinamere will kick off proceedings at 2pm in the Intermediate decider with both sides looking to get their hands on the cup after a few years out of the winning enclosure. Ballinamere last took the crown in 2013 while Brosna Gaels last emerged as champions in 2011.
The main event kicks off at 3.45pm when reigning champions St Rynagh's take on Kilcormac/Killoughey in the senior final. It is a repeat of the 2012 and 2014 finals in which K/K won both while the sides also met in the 2015 and 2016 semi finals with St Rynagh's winning those two bouts.
Both go into the game missing key men with Dan Currams out for K/K due to broken ankle picked up before the semi final while Paul Quirke will miss out for Rynagh's after picking up an arm injury last weekend.
Meanwhile on Saturday, the junior and senior camogie finals are also down for decision. The double header in St Brendan's Park will see Lusmagh/Drumcullen take on Kilcormac/Killoughey in the Junior decider and St Rynagh's take on Shinrone in the senior encounter.
