Preview | SHC holders Kilamllock prepare for round three battle against Adare

Kilmallock sit on two points after two games as they defend their SHC title.

The Limerick Senior Hurling Championship makes a return this weekend with Adare and Kilmallock raising the curtain on round three’s fixtures tonight.

It’s been three weeks since either side has been in action due to the resumption of the SFC and both teams are fighting in different ends of the spectrum in terms of the group.

Take a look at our preview of the game between Adare and Kilmallock from the latest edition of our Treaty Talk podcast.

Adare are yet to put a win on the board this season, with their only point coming from their opening day draw against Ahane. They were beaten by six points against Doon in the last round so the side may feel that the break came at an ideal time in the season. The side will be hoping to pick up a win within their next few fixtures or their Senior Hurling Championship status may be put in doubt.

Defending champions Kilmallock, on the other hand, were unlucky not to get a win against tournament favourites Na Piarsaigh in the last round, narrowly losing out by one point in a titanic battle between the two sides. With Na Piarsaigh and Patrickswell out of the way for the holders, it seems that the side’s toughest tasks have already been faced but it won’t be an easy run-in for them whatsoever. They’ll be looking to get back on track again this weekend and work towards retaining their crown.

The two sides haven’t went to head-to-head since in the SHC since the 2019 edition with Kilmallock coming out on top in the group fixture winning 0-18 to 0-13.

A win will put Kilmallock top of the group, for the time being, while Adare have the chance to go second and leap-frog their opponents.

Adare face Kilmallock this Thursday at 6:15pm in Ballyagran in round three of the Bon Secours Limerick Senior Hurling Championship.
