For the fourteenth year in Brian Cody's 17 year managerial career Kilkenny have again qualified for the All Ireland Final. They will meet the winners of Galway and Tipperary, who play in the second semi-final next Sunday, in the hurling showpiece on Sept 6th. Yesterday in Croke Park they were made to fight all the way by a young Waterford side who can look back on 2015 as a year of great progress under Derek Mc Grath.

Kilkenny and Galway will have to do it all again to see who books their place in the Sept 6th Electric Ireland Minor Final. Kilkenny appeared to have secured the victory twice in this game but Galway landed two goals at crucial times to force the tie to a replay.
The replay goes ahead next Sunday in Croke Park with a 12 noon throw in. This will be followed by 2nd semi-final between Tipperary and Dublin and the senior game Tipperary v Galway. Watch out for details here of ticket sales later in the week.

The Fifth and Final Draw took place in Piltown last evening with 7 top prizes of €1000 up for grabs.
Kilkenny GAA would again like to thank all those who supported this draw in 2015 - purchasers, sellers, Club Organisers etc. The draw is probably the biggest fund-raiser for many of our clubs and provides very important funding for the county also.
Thank you all!
