It’s a busy day of hurling across the county today.

Starting in the FBD senior hurling championship, there are two quarter-finals taking place.

The first is at 2 o’clock in Semple Stadium where Kiladangan go up against Toomevara.

The two sides met at this stage of last years competition and Kiladangan’s Darragh Egan believes the players knowledge of each other will lead to tight affair today:

“The bulk of our panel and the bulk of the Toome panel have faced each other on numerous occasions over the past number of years and have had some savage battles, with Toome winning some, Kiladangan winning some.

“And I would say, going on last year’s quarter final, that was a savage, savage battle, and both teams I would assume are really looking forward to it.

“It’s going to be a good one. It’s going to be tough.”

The other quarter final taking place today sees Thurles Sarsfields face Nenagh Eire Og in Semple Stadium.

Throw in there is at 6 o clock.

We’ll have live commentary of both of those games here on Tipp FM.
