Dónal Óg Cusack's hurling championship predictions

Saturday 21st November 2020

Down v Kildare, Croke Park, 4pm

This title has added significance, in being the 100th anniversary of the great one's birth.

Down were the story of last weekend when they knocked out Offaly after the first ever inter-county hurling championship penalty shootout.

They were full value for their victory though, with Offaly having to scramble two late points in extra-time.

This is a very tight call, with Kildare looking to add to their titles of 2014 and '18 but I expect Ronan Sheehan's Down to have learned from their defeat in last year's decider and I am giving them the nod.
