The semi-finals of this year’s O’Dwyer Steel West U21A Hurling championship will take place on this Sunday November 6th. Defending champions Cappawhite/Sean Treacys will take on Clonoulty/Rossmore in what is a repeat of last year’s decider. This game is fixed for Dundrum at 12 noon. This will be Cappawhite/Treacys first game in the defence of their title having received a walkover in round 1. Clonoulty/Rossmore enjoyed a comfortable victory over Galtee/Emly in round 1.

In the other semi-final Golden/Kilfeacle will take on Galtee/Emly in Sean Treacy Park at 12 noon. Golden/Kilfeacle saw off the challenge of Arravale Rovers in the preliminary round. The latter then withdrew from the tournament meaning Galtee/Emly took the last semi-final spot.
