Home comforts! Kildare clubs to enjoy home advantage in Leinster semi-finals
14:50 Wednesday 14th of November 2018

Two Mile House and Milltown will enjoy home advantage once again as they prepare for their respective Leinster semi-finals in 10 days time. Both clubs enjoyed victories at the quarter-final stage in the Intermediate and Junior Championships last Saturday, and they will be hoping that home advantage helps them once again on November 24.

They were two very different games for the Kildare intermediate and junior championship winners, with Two Mile House eventually pulling clear in an end to end battle with Round Towers Lusk, while Milltown had to show all their resolve to engineer a narrow win over Carlow’s Naomh Eoin in Hawkfield.

Milltown are set to face St Brigid’s Croghan of Offaly, while Two Mile House will be taking on Laois intermediate champions Courtwood.

Both teams are scheduled to play at 1.30pm on November 24, but seeing as Milltown will most likely use Hawkfield as the venue to stage the game, the time of the fixture may be flexible. Two Mile House played in St Conleth's Park at 1.30pm last Saturday and Milltown played their match at 4pm in Hawkfield, so a similar scenario may come under consideration again.
