We’re down to the final four in Wexford this weekend, as recent champions Naomh Eanna and Oulart-The Ballagh clash at the semi-final stage.

There has been a huge turnaround in the Oulart panel since last winning it in 2016, as discussed in our podcast.

Shelmaliers and Glynn-Barntown may not have a host of star names, but both impressed hugely in their quarter-final wins over Faythe Harriers and St Martin’s respectively.

Can Mount Sion beat De La Salle — last year’s runners up — without suspended Austin Gleeson?

Can Ballygunner maintain their unbeaten Waterford county championship run run since 2013 in their quarter-final against Fourmilewater?

The Kilkenny and Tipperary championships are beginning to hot up, with All-Ireland club winners and finalists Ballyhale Shamrocks and Borris-Ileigh both needing positive results to prevail from their groups.

St Mullin’s and Mount Leinster Rangers share 35 Carlow county titles between them, and we talk about Marty ‘Mouse’ Kavanagh come up against a horde of cousins this weekend.
