Big day for Kildare hurling as minors and U21s contest All-Ireland semi-finals
10:09 Saturday 19th of August 2017

It's a big day for underage hurling in Kildare as two of the county's teams aim to make it to All-Ireland finals when they come up against Leinster opposition in their respective semi-final games.

The Kildare minor hurlers are first up at 3pm when they travel to Trim to take on Meath in the All-Ireland Minor B Hurling Championship semi-final. Martin Boran's men won a thrilling tie with Kerry last weekend as Sean Cullen's second half goal helped them to come from behind and seal a 1-14 to 1-12 victory over the Kingdom.

The U21 hurlers will be playing Wicklow in Arklow this evening at 5pm.

They earned a straight passage to the semi-final of the competition when Armagh pulled out of their quarter-final tie last Saturday, while Wicklow hammered Roscommon by 4-17 to 0-16 in their last eight meeting to advance to this stage.

If the minors win they will be playing either Armagh or Down in the final, while the U21s will contest the decider against either Kerry or Meath if they advance.
