Armagh hurlers will travel to Croke Park on Saturday to take on Mayo in the Nicky Rackard All-Ireland Hurling final at 3.30pm. The match-up will be the third in the past three months, with each side claiming a win. Armagh, who won the league, go into the match having claimed wins over Donegal, Longford and Fingal, while Mayo got the better of Tyrone, Armagh and Donegal. In the semi-finals, Armagh produced a super performance, especially in the second half, with Conor Corvan hitting two goals, as well as one which was wrongly disallowed, and Declan Coulter adding another to secure a fourteen point win. Mayo had a good four point win against a Donegal side, which also caused Armagh a number of problems in the first round. The referee has been confirmed as Johnny Murphy from Limerick.
We wish the hurlers and their management team the best of luck in the Nicky Rackard final and we encourage all Armagh supporters to get behind the team in Croke Park on Saturday. Guíonn muid gach rath ar na h-iománaithe agus ar an fhoireann bhainistíochta Dé Sathairn i bPáirc an Chrócaigh.
