Carlow SHC: Ballinkillen looking forward

October 09, 2019

Ballinkillen and St Mullins met in the Carlow SHC semi-final on Saturday

Ballinkillen manager Tommy Comerford has stressed that all their focus is now on Saturday’s county SHC semi-final.

Following a much publicised fall out with the county board that saw the club refuse to play their county SHC semi-final against St Mullins on the same weekend that they had a number of players lining out with Kildavin-Clonegal, they were subsequently threw out of the championship and their opponents were handed a place in the final.

An appeal by the club was thrown out, but the St Mullins club has offered to play the semi-final and Ballinkillen are now back in the fray.

Comerford told the Carlow Nationalist that all their focus was now on the field and preparing for Saturday’s clash at Netwatch Cullen Park.

“That was the goal at the start of the year. To play a semi-final and hopefully a final as well. Thankfully it is all resolved. It will make a good game,” said Comerford.

“St Mullins didn’t want to go through without playing a semi-final as well. They don’t want to be given games. The lads are in good spirits. We will give it a rattle and hopefully it will be a good game.”
