Liberty Insurance All Ireland Championship
by Co.Chair on the 23rd of June 2018
With the Liberty Insurance All Ireland Championships well under way at this stage, Kilkenny’s Senior and Intermediate teams have it all to play for. They are both out in their second match of their respective campaigns next Saturday, 30th June.
The seniors, having won their opening game against Limerick will face Waterford in Walsh Park at 5pm. Waterford lost heavily to Galway in their last match so will be hoping to recover some momentum and lay down a marker for the remainder for the championship. With home advantage for Waterford, nothing can be taken for granted and the Kilkenny management team of Ann Downey, Paddy Mullally and Conor Phelan will be looking for a strong performance from their charges.

Meanwhile, the Intermediate team, under the guidance of Aine Fahey, John Scott and Kieran Delaney will travel to Kildare to take on the home side. The venue is not finalised yet but throw in is also set for 5pm. The team recorded an emphatic victory over Antrim last weekend so they will be hoping to continue and put some more points on the table. Kildare, for their part, will be hoping to put their opening match behind them when they lost badly to Westmeath.
