Leinster Minor A Camogie Championship Shield Final

Kilkenny vs. Dublin

Venue: O’Hanrahans GAA, Deerpark, Carlow  2.30pm  Referee: TBC

The Kilkenny minor team will hope to bounce back from their Leinster semi-final defeat to Dublin when they take on Dublin in the Leinster shield final in O’Hanrahans GAA, Carlow on Saturday.

The Kilkenny side just came up short to Wexford three weeks ago in the Leinster semi-final on a 1-17 to 2-10 score line. Similarly, Dublin just came up short against Offaly after a spirited display on a 4-06 to 2-03 score line.

The last time the sides met was in this All-Ireland series where Kilkenny edged the Dubs after a gallant second half comeback on a 3-07 to 1-11 score line. Dublin have some talented players among their ranks with Grace O’Shea, Alex Griffin, Isabelle Costelloe , and Eimear O’Leary all in good form for Dublin this season.

Both sides will be going into the contest hoping to finish the year on a high. Judging on the previous encounter earlier in the year this game could be a very tight contest and could go right down to the wire.  I feel Kilkenny might just prove that bit too strong but I expect a tough battle on Saturday.
