IT’S a high noon meeting on Sunday as Eire Óg Corra Choill and Wolfe Tones meet in the UPMC Junior Hurling Final in St Conleth’s Park.
Wolfe Tones, an amalgamation of Sallins and Kill, topped their Group with victories over Cappagh and Clane while Kilcock conceded their game to them. The Round 3 game against Clane turned out to be an interesting affair with Tones just winning out by a point, 3-13 to 3-12.

In the semi final Wolfe Tones looked liked they were about to exit the championship to Ros Glas only for a late Ross Doyle goal to level the game to send it to a replay. Tones were overwhelming winners in that replay though.
In Group B Eire Óg Corra Choill had big wins over Naas and Leixlip but they had to pull out all the stops to defeat Ros Glas 1-20 to 2-15 and so top the Group.
In the semi final a contribution of 1-9 (8fs) from wing forward, Niall Tierney helped the Donore men to a 1-17 to 0-13 victory over Clane.
Conor Egan, Aaron Carney and Ross Doyle are potent forwards for Wolfe Tones but EOCC have a good mixture of youth and experience and will look to Niall Tierney, JP Crotty, Liam Power and Sean O’Neill to see them to victory.
