Form Guide

The sides met two weeks ago with Kerry winning 0-29 to 2-21 in Belfast, cementing their place in the final of the Joe McDonagh Cup final alongside the Saffrons.

The vital win for Kerry meant they qualified for the final ahead of both Carlow and Offaly. The three sides were level on six points in the table after three wins and two defeats each, but the Kingdom's superior points difference seperated the sides.

Antrim's defeat last week was the only that they suffered during the campaign after picking up wins over Carlow, Meath, Offaly and Down.


Both Kerry and Antrim have shown their attacking abilities in abundance over the course of the season. Antrim's most impressive showing came against Meath where they ran out 7-29 to 3-13 victors over the Royals at Pairc Tailteann.


Kerry's biggest win of the season also came over Meath where they won 6-25 to 0-13.

Regardless of the result on Saturday, both sides are guaranteed a place in the preliminary All Ireland quarterfinals where they will face the third placed Leinster and Munster sides.

Speaking to RTE Sport, Kerry's Eric Leen said that his side base a lot of their hurling around current All Ireland champions Limerick.

Leen said:


We always bring serious intensity to our hurling, we give games to anyone and I guess if there is a difference in the higher levels and reaching there it is in the bits of hurling, the crispness, ball to hand, the finishing that the likes of Limerick have.

Molumphy has built resilience with us and our confidence is growing as we get results. That said, we are not looking at results, we are looking at performances. That’s our gauge. With a good performance you can come out with your head held high.

Kerry will be hoping to go one step further in the competition this year after losing to Westmeath in the 2021 Joe McDonagh Cup final.


Meanwhile for Antrim, they will be keen to recreate the 2020 final where they overcame Kerry by a score off 0-22 to 1-17.
