WEXFORD club Oulart-The Ballagh have benefited from the fact that last weekend's Kilkenny senior hurling final finished in a draw.

Henry Shefflin's last-gasp equaliser for Ballyhale Shamrocks means their county final against James Stephens must go to a replay next weekend.

The winners are due to play Oulart in the Leinster club quarter-final, which had been fixed for next Sunday but that has now been postponed to Sunday week in Nowlan Park.

That is good news for Oulart as their camogie side play Ballyboden St Enda's in the Leinster club final next weekend and there is now no clash for several families like the Jacobs, who provide players to both teams.
