NOT LONG AFTER referee Barry Kelly blew the final whistle on today’s pulsating All-Ireland Senior Hurling final with nothing to separate Kilkenny and Tipperary, rumours began to circulate on social media of a potential issue with the replay date for Eoin Larkin.

According to some Twitter users, the James Stephens forward is due to get married on Saturday, September 27, when Kilkenny and Tipperary will have to do it all again in Croke Park.

However, this evening the official Twitter account of the Kilkenny County Board confirmed the rumours were untrue and that Larkin would be free to play in the replay.
