Waterford concede home advantage to Kilkenny for National Hurling League clash

Waterford have agreed to allow Kilkenny home advantage for their National Hurling League clash in March.

The Division 1, Group B game was originally supposed to be played at Walsh Park, but the redevelopment works meant an alternative venue had to be found.

According to the Irish Examiner, it will now go ahead on March 19th in Nowlan Park.

Dungarvan's Fraher Field will be the venue for the Dรฉise's other home games against Dublin on February 5th (their league opener), and against Antrim on February 26th.
