Cuala manager Mattie Kenny is expecting a stern challenge from Kilcormac/Killoughey in Sunday week's Leinster club SHC final.
The reigning All-Ireland champions will go into the O'Moore Park decider as favourites to retain their provincial crown, but Kenny knows the rejuvenated Offaly champions will be difficult to beat.
"It's our third final in-a-row, but we've only won one of those. And Kilcormac-Killoughey are a very, very experienced side," the Galway native told the Irish Daily Star after Cuala's win 11-point win over St. Martin's yesterday.
"They've been on the Leinster campaign for a good while now and they were Leinster champions a few years back. They are going to bring a huge, huge challenge to us and it's going to be a massive battle for us in two weeks' time."
