Offaly Senior Hurling Championship Weekend Preview

Four games are down for decision.

There's a full round of fixtures the Senior Hurling Championship in Offaly this weekend. 

At half 7 this evening, last years semi-finalists Shinrone open their challenge against newly promoted Ballinamere in Rath. 

It's a repeat from the championship last year which saw Shinrone run out comfortable winners. 

Former All-Ireland Hurling final referee Brian Gavin says the gap will be a lot closer this year:

At the same time, 2019 county finalists Birr take on Kilcormac Killoughey in Banagher. 

Brian thinks the youth in the Birr ranks might just edge it:

On Saturday, Seir Kieran play Coolderry.

While in the other fixture, it's a repeat of last year's semi-final as Belmount take on champions St. Rynagh's in O'Connor park.

Brian Gavin says that one will come down to a single puck:
