After a terrific Wexford Senior hurling campaign, newly crowned champions Naomh Eanna now set their sights on the Leinster Club Hurling Championship…
The Wexford champions will face the Laois hurling champions, Camross, on Sunday 4th November in the Leinster club hurling championship quarter-final.
Although the match will be played away [in O’Moore Park], Naomh Eanna enter the game as strong favorites, priced at 2/9 with most bookmakers.
Camross, priced at 7/2 outsiders, will have it all to play for too – and they certainly won’t fear the first-time Wexford Senior Hurling champions on their home soil.
A win against Laois’ Camross would set up a mouth-watering tie against Kilkenny’s Ballyhale Shamrocks in the Leinster Club semi-final.
On Sunday (28th October) afternoon, Kilkenny’s Ballyhale Shamrocks romped to victory against Bennettsbridge to capture their first Kilkenny SHC trophy since 2014.
That semi-final would be played at home (Sunday 18th November), likely Innovate Wexford Park, where a huge Wexford crowd would gather to support the Gorey men.
Ballyhale Shamrocks, now managed by all-time great Henry Shefflin, boasts players of the caliber of Michael Fennelly, TJ Reid, Colin Fennelly, and Adrian Mullen, to name just a few.
The Gorey natives will have to get over the Laois clash first, but an exciting clash awaits the Wexford champions in the semi-final if they attain the win.
