Tonight`s match has been has already had a number of venue changes due to the bad weather causing waterlogged pitches etc. But this morning the venue for the second group game has been fixed for Russell Park.
The home of of St Brigid’s GAA club in Blanchardstown, will welcome Reigning O’Byrne Cup, Allianz League, Leinster and All-Ireland champions Dublin. Dublin began the competition with a draw against Wexford on Sunday after battling back after being seven points down.
Jim Gavin will be confident that his experimental side can go one better against IT Carlow this evening, in a squad that was both talent and experience, Dublin will surely be the favourites over the students of Carlow IT.
On the other hand Barrowside students did not turn up at all on the pitch during their opening game of the competition and suffered a heavy 3-20 to 2-6 loss to DCU.
The students will be looking to improve on their disappointing start, and although it is unlikely they will be get a result tonight they will be hoping to put a respectable account of themselves this time out.
