While most of the attention has been focused in recent weeks on the exploits of the county’s footballers, the hurlers have been tipping along nicely as well. Next weekend it’s they who move centre-stage.
With wins recorded over Monaghan, Tyrone and Leitrim, Derek Walsh’s team have enjoyed an untroubled passage into the final of this year’s Nicky Rackard Cup. The county last tasted success at this level in 2016 at Croke Park and it’s back to HQ that the team are heading this coming Sunday for the decider against Donegal.
The Rackard Cup final forms part of a Croke Park double-header on Sunday, with our game throwing in at 1.30pm and the final of the Christy Ring Cup, involving Down and Kildare, getting going at 4pm.
Both matches are being streamed live by TG4 on their YouTube channel. Like I was able to do for the Leitrim game last weekend, this means I’ll run the live stream here on the site too. Hopefully this time the stream keeps going for the whole game.
I’ll have a bit more on the Rackard Cup final here on the blog ahead of Sunday.
