Kildare En Route Back To Croke Park & McIlroy Paired With Johnson.

: 07/17/2017 - 17:25


Kildare are heading back to Croke Park.

The CCCC have fixed Kildare's Round 4B meeting with Armagh as top-billing on July 29th, throw-in at 7 O'clock.

It will be preceded by Down's clash with Monaghan, which throws-in at 5pm.

Eoin Doyle  is expected to miss that game.

The Naas man broke his thumb in training last week, but played 52 minutes of yesterday's Leinster SFC 2-23 to 1-17 final defeat to Dublin at Croke Park and we understand he had surgery today.

Whilst Kildare is likely to appeal the controversial black card meted-out to Kevin Feely in the 64th minute of yesterday's match

It is Feely's third black card, in any competition, this season.

It carries a one match ban.

If carried out, it means he will miss the qualifier.


Club fixtures for tonight – all games throwing in at 8pm with the first team named at home.
