PARNELL'S v O'TOOLE'S (tonight, Parnell Park, 6.45)

The spirits are high following Saturday's senior hurling championship victory over Lucan. And O'Toole's will gladly go to the well again tonight.

In the modern era they are known as a leading hurling club, but they have 11 Dublin SFC titles to their name, the last one coming in 1946.
