Kilkenny’s Gaelic Football development project continued at the weekend when the Under-15 squad travelled to the O’Donnell’s club in Belfast to play Antrim in the “Antrim Cup”. Kilkenny started very well and led 2-6 to 0-3 at the interval. The application of the players in the second period continued as Kilkenny recorded a fine 3-10 to 0-7 victory with exceptional performances all round. There were also victories in Hurling at Under-14, Under-15 and Under-16.
The Gaelic Football development project will now move to preparations for the Under-14 Leinster Blitz on the 13th May. With this in mind all Under-14s and Under-15s (born 2002/2003) are requested to attend training at the MW Hire Training Centre in Dunmore on Saturday at 11am. These are open sessions,. Clubs are requested to encourage their players to attend.

Two well matched teams played the Duggan Steel u14 B League Final on a lovely evening with little or no breeze in Dr Tierney Park recently. 3 early goals from the home side proved to be deciding factor,and despite the best efforts of the boys from the Bridge these early goals proved to be too much of a hurdle to overcome. Both teams played the game in an excellent and sportsman like manner,and team mentors are to be congratulated for this.
