It was a mixed weekend for Kilkenny Clubs in the AIB Leinster Club Championships. Try as they might Dicksboro could not cause an upset against current All Ireland Champions Cuala in Parnell Park on Sunday. St Patricks qualified for the Intermediate semi-final with a good win over Kildare side Ardclough in Newbridge. Meanwhile John Lockes continued their winning ways in a one-sided contest against Fr Daltons of Westmeath. John Lockes now play St Mogues/Fethard in the Leinster Final next Saturday at a Wexford venue. St Patricks will be away to Kiltale of Meath in the semi-final on Saturday 18th.
