OULART-THE-BALLAGH and Mount Leinster Rangers will don the county colours of Wexford and Carlow for this year’s AIB Leinster SHC club final.

Both clubs wear black and red jerseys which means a colour clash was on the cards after they won their semi-final ties yesterday.

Now the Leinster Council have ordered the teams to wear their respective county colours for the decider on December 1st at Nowlan Park.

Oulart-the-Ballagh will wear Wexford’s purple and gold strip while Mount Leinster Rangers will be kitted out in Carlow’s red, yellow and green striped jerseys.

The Kilkenny stadium of Nowlan Park has as expected been confirmed as the venue for the final. It has hosted the last two deciders which have seen Oulart-the-Ballagh suffer defeat against Offaly opponents Coolderry and Kilcormac-Killoughey respectively.

Oulart-the-Ballagh will be contesting their fifth Leinster club final but have lost all of their previous deciders in 1994, 1995, 2010, 2011 and 2012.

Mount Leinster Rangers will be breaking new ground by becoming the first Carlow team to feature at this stage after yesterday’s stunning success against Ballyboden St-Enda’s.
