Kilcormac/Killoughey captain Ciaran Slevin has been the scorer in chief for his side in this year’s championship and his contribution, particularly in the last two games, has been vital to his team’s cause.
The ace marksman scored 1-9 in the county final against St Ryangh’s and he followed that up with 1-10 out of a total of 1-11 in the Leinster quarter-final against Mount Leinster Rangers.
He has lead from the front and he is likely to be marked out for special attention by Rathdowney-Errill this Sunday with their captain Brian Campion likely to be assigned a man marking role.
Slevin is expecting a difficult game from the side from the other side of the Slieve Bloom mountains.
“Rathdowney Errill is going to a very difficult game, they’ve beaten Clonkill who are a very good team too and we’re expecting a real tough one.” Slevin says Kilcormac/Killoughey’s preparations have been going well. “Our preparations have been going well in recent weeks, I know a few guys have been carrying injuries but hopefully everyone can be fit for the semi final.” He also thinks that home advantage will be important. “We’re very used to playing at O’Connor Park and have played there four or five times each year in the last few years and we’ve nice memories from county final day.”
The game can be heard live this Sunday from 2pm on Midlands 103.
