Tributes paid after tragic passing of Ballyhale club member with senior quarter-final postponed

Ballyhale’s Kilkenny senior quarter-final against Clara was postponed as a mark of respect.

ALL-IRELAND CLUB champions Ballyhale’s quarter-final tie in Kilkenny was postponed today as a mark of respect to a club member who passed away overnight tragically in a road accident.

Ballyhale Shamrocks were due to face Clara in the senior hurling tie this afternoon in Nowlan Park but the game will now take place at a later date.

The match had been set to be televised live on RTÉ but instead there was an alternative senior hurling double-header in Nowlan Park.

The first quarter-final between O’Loughlin Gaels and Mullinavat, which was switched from Danesfort, finished tied at 0-12 apiece with a replay now required.

In the second game Erins Own booked their semi-final place after defeating 2017 champions Dicksboro 1-8 to 1-6. Kilkenny senior Conor Fogarty grabbed a crucial goal for the winners from a late free with his county team-mate Bill Sheehan raising a late green flag for Dicksboro.

The Ballyhale-Clara game is set to be re-arranged this week with the remaining quarter-final taking place at 12pm tomorrow between Rower-Inistioge and James Stephens.
