Kilkenny 2-19 Dublin 2-10
It was hard to believe that that this Kilkenny Minor side suffered a 2-8 to 0-3 defeat to Dublin in the first round of the Leinster championship in Nowlan Park back in April. But stung by this defeat and building steadily over the Leinster campaign they totally dominated their opponents to win their 55th Leinster title.

Railyard 1-5 Muckalee 1-4
By virtue of their victory in the J J Kavanagh and Sons Senior Football Final in Nowlan Park on Saturday evening Railyard have joined the top of the roll of honour with Glenmore on 20 titles. They also denied Muckalee their 5 in a row bid keeping intact their own record held between 1969 anf 1973.
There was little between the sides throughout with a John Maher goal in the 23rd minute giving Muckalee the edge at half time 1-3 to 0-3. A Sean Brennan goal midway through the second half pushed Railyard ahead and the same player scored the crucial winning point in injury time as a replay looked the likely outcome.

The Kilkenny Minor and Senior Teams to play Dublin in the Leinster Hurling Finals in Croke Park were announced after training sessions in Kilkenny this evening.
The Senior Team sees three changes from the side that defeated Galway in the semi-final replay. David Herity replaces Eoin Murphy on goal but the good news for Kilkenny is that Eoin has made a good recovery from injury and takes his place on the subs bench. Walter Walsh replaces Tommy Walsh and John Power replaces Aidan Fogarty.
Meanwhile the Kilkenny Minor panel were dealt a blow this week when Ballyhale's Darren Mullen suffered a bad knee injury. His place on the team has been filled by Pat Lyng of the Rower Inistioge.
