THE dates and times have been set for the upcoming hurling and football club championship finals, which sees the Ulster and Antrim champions St Enda’s, Glengormley in action at Croke Park, writes Liam Hogan.
The four games take place on Saturday, February 9 and Sunday, February 10 as the hurling and football clubs look to take home the silverware.
The first match in the Saturday football double-header throws in at 3pm as Connacht and Munster’s junior club champions square off. This game sees the first of the two Kerry teams in action, as Beaufort battle Sligo’s Easkey.
St Enda’s face the second Kerry team, Kilcummin, in the afternoon’s main event. The intermediate final promises to be a competitive clash with the Ulster team looking to come out on top and earn the title as the All-Ireland intermediate club champions. The second game is meant to begin at 4.45pm, however any extra-time in the junior final may push it back.
The Sunday’s hurling double-header has an earlier start, with the junior final scheduled to throw in at 1.30pm. The game will see the only other Ulster team in action as Monaghan’s Castleblayney take on Dunnamaggin from the hurling stronghold of Kilkenny.
The intermediate final is a clash between Charleville of Cork and Galway’s Oranmore-Maree who won both the Galway and Connacht intermediate championships. The final game of the weekend begins at 3.15pm as both teams look to be crowned champions.
All four clashes are being broadcasted on TG4 Online.
