It’s a local derby affair in the Co. Senior hurling Championship semi-final this afternoon.
Five in a row chasing Ballygunner take on their neighbours Passage in Walsh Park.
The Gunners who claimed their first four in a row last season, were pushed all the way by Roanmore in their recent Quarter-Final but came through by three points.
Passage arguably gave the most impressive display in their Quarter-Final as they hammered Dungarvan rattling in five goals in the process.
Ballygunner boss is former Déise captain Fergal Hartley, he says Passage will come with a massive challenge this afternoon.
Passage claimed their first and only senior title when they defeated Ballygunner in a dramatic decider in 2013 but Reds manager John Tracey says they’ve moved on since then.
John says there’s a nice blend of youth and experience in their panel.
Throw-in is at 3pm and WLR will bring you all the action live thanks to George Corbett Skoda, with commentary team Kieran O’ Connor and Dan Shanahan.
