The Conway Cup is up for grabs in Fraher Field this evening as Comeragh rivals, The Nire and Kilrossanty lock horns in an eagerly awaited Co. Senior football Championship Final.
The Nire, who are appearing in their third successive Final put in a strong second half performance to see off Ballinacourty last weekend by 2-11 to 2-9.
Kilrossanty who are aiming to bridge a 29 year gap, it’s been four weeks since they disposed of An Rinn in impressive fashion in the semi-final.
The sides last met in the decider in 2000, with the Ballymacarbry outfit coming out on top by three points.
Kilrossanty goalkeeper Darren Mulhearne is only link their last title win in 1989 and he told WLR Sport it’s great to be back in a County Final.
The Nire captain Dylan Guiry netted two crucial goals last weekend, and he says it’s another big occasion for the club.
Dylan told WLR Sport they’ve put in a big effort after a disappointing campaign in the hurling Championship.
Dylan says it’d be a huge honour if he was to lift the Conway Cup this evening.
Throw-in is at 6pm, and WLR will broadcast the game thanks to George Corbett Skoda, with commentary team Kieran O’ Connor and Jason Ryan.
