We were served up a magnificent evening's entertainment as both the Leinster SHC and SFC started with a bang!
Reigning All-Ireland champions Galway opened their defence of the Leinster senior hurling championship in a mouth-watering Round One meeting with an improving Offaly side at Tullamore (7pm). Even though the competition is being played on a round-robin basis, defeat today would represent a major setback for either side.
The Tribesmen were red-hot favourites but the Faithful County played with fire in their bellies.
Meanwhile, in the Leinster SFC, Wexford entertained Laois (6:30) to see who would advance to a quarter-final date with Westmeath. These sides moved in opposite directions during the league, but tonight's game was nothing short of sensational.
