Since we went to print last night (Monday) there have been a number of changes to the weekend’s busy schedule of County Hurling Championship finals.

The biggest alteration is the movement, following an agreement between Ballygunner and Ballysaggart, to bring forward the Intermediate Hurling Final to Thursday September 8. This game will now throw-in at 7.30pm in Fraher Field as Ballysaggart aim to make a return to the senior ranks and Ballygunner hope to get what could be an incredible weekend for their club off to the best possible start.

It is followed on Friday night by the meeting of Fourmilwater and Dunhill in Fraher Field, also at 7.30pm, in the JJ Kavanagh & Sons Co. Junior B hurling final.

Then on Saturday there’s a county final double header in Fraher Field. At 2pm An tSean Phobail take on Tramore at 2pm in the County Junior C hurling final, followed at 4pm by the meeting of Colligan Rockies and Ballygunner in the County Junior A decider.

And of course on Sunday is the 15th County senior hurling final meeting of great rivals Ballygunner and Moun Sion in Walsh Park at 2.30pm.
