Leinster Senior Championship

Semi Final

Kilkenny vs Kildare (Sunday) 

Venue: (St Conleth’s Park, Newbridge, 3.00pm) Referee: TBC

The Kilkenny senior camogie team will hope to book themselves a place in the Leinster final in a few weeks time against Offaly when they take on Kildare in Newbridge on Sunday.

Kilkenny have being in good form this season under the stewardship of new manger Fintan Deegan.  They recovered brilliantly from their opening round league defeat to Cork with wins over Derry Dublin and Clare to secure a semi final berth where they came up short over a goal hungry Galway side. They have recovered well from that loss and have being going well in training and recent challenge games. Kildare were in excellent form in Division two of the league where they ran through the campaign with four wins over Wexford, Galway, Westmeath and Antrim and only suffered one loss to eventual finalists Laois. They missed out on League final berth where Waterford proved too strong for them in the semi final.  Kildare are a team that are making great strides in camogie circles and have talented players among their ranks. Kilkenny will need to be wary not to underestimate the scoring threat they process as they racked up eleven goals in five games. In saying this Kilkenny will be a massive step up for the Lilywhites after operating at a higher level in the league. Kildare will provide a test for the cats, but it is hard to see anything but a comprehensive Kilkenny victory on Sunday.
