PREVIEW | Top of the table clashes in both the Senior and Premier Intermediate Championships on Thursday

The Senior Hurling Championship will enter it’s fourth round while the PIHC prepares for round five.

Another weekend of club hurling is just around the corner with the next round in SHC and the PIHC getting underway on Thursday evening.

Group two is on the agenda for the Senior Hurling Championship, with top side Ballybrown in action against Garryspillane while the PIHC sees a top-four clash between Newcastle West and Bruff.

The group stages for both championships are approaching the final rounds, with qualification and relegation both up in the air for either competition.


Thursday’s Fixtures

Senior Hurling Championship

Ballybrown v Garryspillane (6pm in Caherconlish)

A first championship defeat of the season was Ballybrown’s fate last weekend, as they were beaten by a single point against Kildimo Pallaskenry. The two points dropped left the side on four points, level with three other sides including Garryspillane, with the race for qualification is heating up. If Ballybrown can provide a response, they’ll hold the upper hand heading into the last round of fixtures.

Garryspillane, on the other hand, got the better off Mungret St. Pauls last weekend making it two on the spin for the side. The same permutations apply for them, and they will benefit hugely from a win against the table toppers and complete an impressive turnaround after their opening round defeat against South Liberties.

The sides last faced each other in the SHC back in 2020, with Ballybrown running riot with a 5-25 to 1-11 victory.

Premier Intermediate Hurling Championship

Bruff v Newcastle West (6pm in Feenagh)

As the face for top four heats up in the Premier Intermediate, two sides in the mix do battle tonight with Bruff and Newcastle West facing each other in Feenagh. You can see the side’s permutation’s here ahead of the game.

Both sides sit on five points, after Newcastle West were victorious in round four while Bruff stumbled to defeat against Monaleen. A win will be vital for either side tonight as they could put one foot in the door of a quarter-final place at least, while a loss could still be rectified in the next two fixtures.

Intermediate Hurling Championship

Group 1

Croom v Na Piarsaigh (6pm in Mungret)

Junior A Hurling Championship

Group 4

Rathkeale v Kilteely Dromkeen (6pm in Kilbreedy)
