FBD Insurance County Championships
The FBD Insurance county hurling championships swing into action this weekend with a total of 24 games down for decision. In the senior hurling championship, the action will commence on Friday evening at 7.30 with two games taking place. In FBD Semple Stadium the 2021 county champions Loughmore-Castleiney get the defence of their title underway when they Kiladangan, while in Borrisoleigh Templederry Kenyons will be hoping to overcome a Drom & Inch side who will want to get back to winning ways following their mid final loss to JK Brackens two weeks ago. On Saturday Clonoulty and FBD Semple Stadium will both host double headers which are sure to attract large attendances. At 2.30pm in Clonoulty mid champions JK Brackens will be hoping to keep on a winning track but west runners up Eire Óg Annacarty Donohill will have different ideas. The second game in the west venue is an all mid Tipperary clash as Upperchurch-Drombane and Holycross-Ballycahill go head to head at 4pm in a game that both sides will really want to win and claim the local bragging rights as well as getting the very important points on the league table. The action in FBD Semple Stadium gets under way at 5.30pm with the clash of Toomevara and CJ Kickhams Mullinahone, both of these sides have met on many occasions down through the years and have always served up very entertaining games and Saturday should be no different. The second game in Thurles on Saturday is sure to attract a lot of attention as Thurles Sarsfields and Borris-Ileigh take to the field at 7pm. Both sides will be somewhat disappointed with how their divisional campaigns went and so will be anxious to get back to winning ways. Also on Saturday at 6.30pm in Templederry, Kilruane MacDonaghs and Moycarkey Borris will get their campaigns underway. This game has the potential to be one of the games of the weekend as both sides have been making steady progress in recent years. The final round 1 game in the senior hurling championship will throw in at 1pm on Sunday when west champions Clonoulty Rossmore and north champions Nenagh Eire Óg go head to head on the field of legends in Thurles. Again this game is expected to be a close encounter with little if anything separating the sides when referee John Dooley blows the full time whistle.
