Nolan not taking Oulart lightly

O'Loughlin Gaels won't be underestimating their opponents in Sunday's Leinster Club Hurling Championship final, even though Oulart The Ballagh were run close by Westmeath side Raharney in the semi-final.

"We won't be treating them lightly. They were cruising against Raharney, but they took the foot off the pedal a bit and conceded two late goals," said Gaels manager Mick Nolan.

Nolan was in charge when the Kilkenny club won its only previous provincial tile in 2004, and he expects a feisty derby clash at Dr Cullen Park in Carlow.

"It's a Leinster final between Kilkenny and Wexford, there's that local rivalry."
