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!

Mayo 1-12 Kilkenny 0-8
A disappointing opening quarter, where Kilkenny conceded 1-5 without reply, was the key factor in this result in the All Ireland Junior Football Semi-Final played in O Connor Park Tullamore on Saturday. Kilkenny initially set up very defensively with both David Herity and Brian Egan operating between the half back line and midfield. They reverted to a more orthodox formation after 20 minutes and turned around 5 points in arrears 1-6 to 0-4. They more than matched their opponents in the 2nd half but the illusive goal, which might have turned the tie, never materialised. Kilkenny were still only 4 in arrears in the 52nd minute and threatening goal. But Mayo scored the last 3 points to run out deserving 7 point winners.
