Leinster Senior Hurling Championship

Galway v Kilkenny, Pearse Stadium, 4pm

Championship hurling makes a welcome return to Salthill with Pearse Stadium hosting a first summer match since 2011.

On that occasion Galway defeated Clare in the qualifiers and this also represents the Tribesmen first match on home soil in the Leinster Championship.

That it is against Brian Cody's in form Kilkenny merely adds to the drama and excitement with a significant crowd expected.

Kilkenny finished well to beat Dublin and the Cats did enough to secure a victory over Offaly. Another triumph should be enough to claim a much coveted berth in the All Ireland series.

Galway struck five goals when overcoming Offaly, but Micheal Donoghue's outfit face a tough three week stint now.
