A local weather forecaster may have discovered the key to Kilkenny’s chances of winning the All Ireland Senior Hurling Championship tomorrow.
Alan O’Reilly from Carlow Weather says there’s a good chance the rain will clear for the final against Limerick tomorrow (Sunday) at GAA HQ.
But he says the Kilkenny Captain Eoin Cody should be aware there could be a strong breeze blowing into the Canal End goal in the second half of the decider:
“One little interesting feature that could make a difference is the wind is forecast to pick up around throw in time and actually be a north easterly easily, which will be blown directly from one end to the other from the Hill 16 into the Daven Stand.”
“The wind could play a factor, especially if it picks up in the second half.”
