THE Ballyroe Heights Hotel Senior Championship Final will go ahead this evening (Wednesday) at 8pm in Abbeydorney as Sliabh Luachra take on Southern Gaels.
Sliabh Luachra trying for two-in-arow have the might of Southern Gaels in their way as the Castleisland/ Scartaglin combination side have Mags O'Donoghue, Elaine O'Connor and Mary Herlihy of Scartaglin with Castleisland's Cait Lynch, Aisling Leonard, Aoife Lyons and Lorraine Scanlon going head to head against Caroline and Sarah Kelly, Lorraine Casey, Deirdre Corridon, Megan O'Connell, Anna Galvin and Sarah O'Connor.
Southern Gaels last win and appearance in a county final was back in 2010 and both teams have players who were unlucky to have been defeated in the TG4 All Ireland Final on Sunday last, but they will put that aside as Sliabh Luachra go for two-ina-row and Southern Gaels returning to form should make this a very entertaining encounter. Southern Gaels to shade it and recapture the Ballyroe Heights Hotel Senior Championship title.
The winner of tonight's game will be out in the Munster LGFA Senior B Cup away to the Banner of Clare at 5.30pm on Saturday, if Sliabh Luachra are fortunate tonight this will be a nightmare as Scartaglin will also be out in the Munster LGFA Junior championship away to Boherbue in Ballydesmond at the earlier time of 12.30pm.
