The Joe McDonagh Cup Final – it will be Carlow v Westmeath

Carlow 3-21 Westmeath 1-21 

Last Saturday was packed with hurling action in the Joe McDonagh Cup.

Carlow continue to rise after booking their place in the Joe McDonagh Cup Final when they saw off competition from Westmeath last weekend.

This was the first time that Westmeath suffered defeat in the Joe McDonagh Cup, though they entered this match knowing that they had already secured themselves a spot in the final.

Carlow needed to win this match to ensure that they had a spot in the final as well and Colm Bonnar‘s men delivered the correct result. These two sides will now meet again in the decider in Croke Park on the 1st of July.

With a spot in the All-Ireland Quarter Finals up for grabs, you can guarantee that this match will be a feisty one.

Playoffs for Antrim

Antrim 1-20 Kerry 2-19

Antrim looked to be in complete control of this game in the opening twenty minutes but Kerry responded strongly and were ahead by a single point by halftime.

It was a narrow victory for the Kingdom, as the two sides battled neck and neck, but once Kerry edged ahead in the closing minutes, it was enough to get them over the line and secure their spot in the Joe McDonagh Cup for next year.

For the Ulstermen, they now have to face off against the winners of the Christy Ring Cup in a relegation play-off.

Relegation for Meath

2 years ago, Meath lifted the Christy Ring Cup and they will play again in Tier 3 hurling next year following a heavy defeat to Laois.

A comfortable win for the O’Moore County has secured their place in the Joe McDonagh cup for 2019. Laois were relying on Antrim to lose their game over Kerry, so that the odds would be in their favour. A defeat for the Saffrons and a win for Laois, meant that Laois could breathe a sigh of relief as they avoided relegation to the Christy Ring Cup.

Here is a look at how the table ended up finishing.
