Rathnew and Hollywood in Leinster action.

Wicklow Senior and Intermediate football champions for 2017, Rathnew and Hollywood, are both in Leinster club action over the weekend. Hollywood have had an extra week to wait for their first foray in Leinster after storm ‘Brian’ left pitches unplayable all over the county last weekend. Emo the Laois champ[ions are one of the favourites for the Leinster title and will offer a tough obstacle to Mick Murray’s men. The action starts in Hollywood at 1 p.m. on Saturday with another home game in the next round the prize for a win on Saturday.

Rathnew travel to Drogheda for a 2 p.m. start on Sunday where Newtown Blues will offer a tough challenge to Harry Murphy’s men. Rathnew have a fine record in Leinster and would really love a crack at the Dublin champions in Joule Park in the quarter final which is the prize on offer Sunday. Best of luck to both.
