For the third year in a row Nowlan Park has hosted a major inter county fixture with a near full house. All four participating counties were loud in their praise for all the arrangements put in place. A crowd of 16,445 attended and created a tremendous atmosphere in the compact Nowlan Park Stadium. There were some very favourable comments on the stewarding, The Munster Express in particular going out of their way to praise the attitude of the stewards on duty on Sunday. Kilkenny GAA would like to place on record our gratitude to all who helped out or contributed in any way to enhance the reputation of Nowlan Park.

Nowlan Park was looking its respendent best during the week in the sunshine as players from Dublin, Cork, Tipperary and Waterford met the national media in advance of next Sunday's eagerly anticipated Allianz League Semi-finals. The attractive double header - Cork v Dublin at 2pm and Tipperary v Waterford at 4pm - is sure to attract much local interest and with tickets available at €15, if purchased in advance, local hurling lovers are sure to swell the attendance.
Supporters are asked to note that Kilkenny Season Tickets are valid for this game but entry is in to Ardan de Gras(Paddy Grace Stand) only through stiles 9 to 12 on Hebron Road. Those attending are also reminded that this is an all ticket game and children will require a ticket (€5).

A long-standing gap in GAA literature has just been filled by Kilkenny's resident Tipp man, Jim Fogarty, with the publication of "The Cross of Cashel", a history of the All Ireland Under 21 Hurling Championship. Jim, former Kilkenny County Librarian, and author of "The Dan Breen Cup" (2012), traces the story of the Under 21 Hurling Championship from its beginnings in 1964 to 2014. Given Kilkenny's high success rate in this competition, The Cross of Cashel should prove of great interest to local readers.This book, with its wide range of reports, photographs and statistics, is a must-read for all hurling enthusiasts.
Jim will be signing copies of his book on Saturday next, 18th April in The Book Centre from 2.00pm to 4.00pm.
