Tuesday test for Dublin hurlers

DUBLIN will play UCD tomorrow night at 7.30 in Parnell Park after their Walsh Cup quarter-final was postponed on Saturday.

It was decided early on that the pitch in Parnell Park had endured too much rainfall prior to either side arriving in Donnycarney.

With O'Byrne Cup matches hosted there the previous Sunday and Wednesday in similarly wet conditions, the playing surface has suffered from the effects of inclement weather.

And with rain coming down consistently in the capital on Friday evening and early on Saturday, Dublin were forced to wait a further three days for their competitive opener to 2014.

The winners will face Wexford at a Wexford venue on Sunday in the competition's semi-final, while Kilkenny and Galway will contest the other semi, most likely in Nowlan Park.

Wexford progressed to the semi-finals after a 4-21 to 0-8 win over NUIG in Gorey.

Kilkenny had a facile 5-23 to 1-8 win over DIT, while Galway edged out Brian Whelahan's Offaly on a 1-14 to 1-13 scoreline.



Meanwhile, the Dublin County Board have announced details of the ticket packages for the forthcoming spring series.

Jim Gavin's All-Ireland champions face Kerry, Cork, Kildare and Mayo at home, with a four-game ticket priced at €40 for adults and €10 for juveniles. Single games tickets bought in advance cost €12 for adults (stand and terrace) and €5 for juveniles (stand only).

Tickets bought on the day are €15 for adults (stand and terrace) and €5 for juveniles (stand only).

Tickets are available from clubs, www.tickets.ie, Centra and Supervalu outlets and the GAA Ticket Office (match weeks only).
