Littlewoods Ireland Senior Division 1 League Final

Kilkenny V’s Galway

Venue – Croke Park, Dublin 12 noon Referee – Cathal Egan, Cork

 

The Kilkenny Senior team will be hoping to win their fourth League title in a row when they take on Galway in the Division 1 League Final in Croke Park on Sunday

 

The Kilkenny side had a three-point win over their old rivals Cork three weeks ago in the League Semi Final, 0-12 to 0-9. Galway had a comprehensive win over Limerick in the other semi-final, 2-14 to 0-4

 

The last time the sides met was in the All-Ireland semi final last year where Kilkenny won by 3 points

 

The Galway forwards have been being scoring freely (13-58) so the Kilkenny defence will have to be on their guard

To date, Michelle Quilty (2-20) and Anne Dalton (2-9) have been Kilkenny’s scoring threats

 

If Kilkenny are successful, they would equal their best ever run in the competition. They did the four-in-a-row before in 1987, 1988, 1989 & 1990. It would be the counties 15th League Title
