The 1360 supporters who turned up in Nowlan Park on Sunday were treated to some great camogie action when the two home Clubs Ballyhale and Mullinavat landed Leinster titles in the Intermediate and senior championships respectively. In the opening game Ballyhale scored two goals in a five minute spell early in the second half to push them 3-2 to 0-3 ahead of their rivals Camross from Laois and despite a late onslaught ran out comfortable winners - Ballyhale 3-3 Camross 1-4. In the senior decider Mullinavat seemed to be well in control when they were 2-6 to 0-4 ahead at the break. They had pushed this out to a 10 point margin (2-10 to 0-6) with little over 10 minutes remaining. But goals from the Wexford side St Ibars/Shelmaliers in the 50th, 52nd and 56th minutes really put the cat among the pigeons. In a welter of excitement Mullinavat held out for a two point winning margin. Mullinavat 3-12 St Ibars/Shelmaliers 3-10. Click HERE for images of the day. The win for the two neighbouring Kilkenny Clubs nicely tees up their "Strictly Come Dancing" fund-raiser this coming weekend.
The Rower Inistioge 1-14 Celbridge 0-13
The Rower Inistioge had to pull out all the stops to see off a good Celbridge side in the AIB Leinster Intermediate Hurling Championship in Newbridge on Sunday. There was little between the sides in the first half with the Kilkenny side edging it at half time 0-6 to 0-5. The Rower edged 0-9 to 0-6 ahead by the 37th minute and a James Cassin goal a minute later was to prove crucial. Celbridege never gave up and with five minutes to go had brought the lead back to 3 points 1-12 to 0-12. There was still only one goal between the sides as the game ticked to the final whistle and the Rower saw it out with a 4 point winning margin. They now meet Buffers Alley of Wexford in the Leinster Final on Sunday 24th Nov in Wexford Park.
