Kilkenny 2-14 Carlow 2-12
From what looked like a comfortable position at half time, when they lead 2-9 to 0-8, Kilkenny were hanging on to a two point lead following a Carlow goal in the closing stages. But 1-1 from Carlow's Peter Shaw shortly after the restart set the tone for the second half. The Carlovians took the game to the favourites and Kilkenny were limited to just 5 points in the second half two of these from placed balls. They now face Wexford, a team they have lost to in the two previous championships, in Wexford Park on Wednesday 8th July. Click HERE for images from Network Cullen Park courtesy Willie Dempsey.

Our Footballers made it three wins out of three when they accounted for Gloucestershire 1-16 to 0-1 in the semi-final last weekend. They now play Scotland in the British Final in Edinburgh this Saturday. Kilkenny had already defeated Gloucestershire in their first round game in Nowlan Park and followed this up with a narrow win over Lancashire (1-13 to 1-11). On the way to the final Scotland had wins over Hertfordshire (3-16 to 1-13), Lancashire (0-14 to 0-12) and London (1-11 to 1-10). Scotland defeated Kilkenny 0-17 to 0-8 in last year's semi-final. Scotland subsequently went on to win the British title and were defeated in the All Ireland semi-final by a Cavan side that were later crowned All Ireland champions. Scotland are going for a third British Championship in a row but an improved Kilkenny should make them fight all the way in Saturday's final. Interestingly both finalists had two point wins over Lancashire in the competition which would indicate that there will be little between the sides in Edinburgh. Throw in at 6pm at Granton Road Edinburgh. We hope to have updates on our Twitter feed.
