Preview: County Hurling Finals


Saturday October 14

Leitrim SHC Final

Carrick v Cluainin Iomaint, Pairc Sean MacDiarmada, 3pm

A repeat of last year's decider when Cluainin Iomaint prevailed by an eight point winning margin.

Sunday October 15

Clare SHC Final

Clooney-Quin v Sixmilebridge, Cusack Park, 3.30pm

The past decade has been stuffed with interesting stories in the Clare Senior Hurling Championship.

Cratloe, Clonlara, and Ballyea have been amongst the interesting tales. Can Clooney-Quin, who haven't sampled glory since 1942, be add themselves to that list?

Sixmilebridge have invested hugely in the underage ranks and were top of the pile in 2013 and 2015.

Fergal Lynch is a key man for Clooney-Quin, but the Bridge, who include Niall Gilligan, an All Ireland winner with Clare in 1997, are formidable opponents.

Limerick SHC Final

Na Piarsaigh v Kilmallock, Gaelic Grounds, 4pm

Na Piarsaigh have claimed three Limerick and Munster Championship crowns since 2011.

On St Patrick's Day, 2016 they earned All Ireland glory. That is the standard at which they can operate, their panel is studded with stars.

Shane Dowling, Kevin Downes, Alan Dempsey, Peter Casey, and Ronan Lynch are accomplished performers.

Kilmallock, though, will be looking to Graeme Mulcahy, Dan Joy, Robbie Hanley, and Gavin O'Mahony for inspiration.

This could go the distance.

Kerry SHC Final replay

Ballyduff v Lixnaw, Austin Stack Park, 3pm

The drawn encounter ended in a welter of drama and excitement.

Shane Conway inspired a late Lixnaw rally to deny Ballyduff, who were prompted by the opportunistic Padraig Boyle.

London SHC Final

Robert Emmetts v Kilburn Gaels, Ruislip, 2.30pm

Robert Emmetts, who include London senior manager Fergus McMahon in their ranks, are looking to complete a three-in-a-row at McGovern Park.

Kilburn Gaels, though, have enjoyed an encouraging campaign and hope to seriously test the favourites.

Carlow SHC Final

Mount Leinster Rangers v Naomh Eoin, Netwatch Cullen Park, 3.45pm

Mount Leinster Rangers have been beaten in the last two Carlow deciders by St Mullin's.

Since their last victory at this level, Naomh Eoin have been beaten in the 2011 and 2014 finals.
