For the second weekend in a row the Kilkenny Footballers had a successful outing in the British Junior Football Championship. This weekend they had a 4-11 to 1-12 victory over Lancashire in Manchester having accounted for London 3-8 to 1-13 in Ruislip the previous weekend. They now take on Scotland in Edinburgh next Saturday evening at 6pm in the Semi-Final. Last year the team went out of this championship at the quarter-final stage ironically to Scotland whose injury time goal denied the cats a place in the 2013 semi-final. Full credit to Christy Walsh and his selectors and a great bunch of dedicated players for reaching the semi-final. Kilkenny GAA wishes them all the very best at the weekend.

The experiment to move the Poc Fada from its usual home in Nowlan Park to the Race Course at Gowran Park proved to be a huge success. Almost 100 players between Hurling and Camogie took part down the finishing straight at the famous Race Course on Thursday evening in glorious sunshine.. And besides the participants a large group of supporters was also on hand to enjoy a great occasion.
Winner of the Adult competition was Kevin Walsh from Piltown who now represents Kilkenny in the Leinster Final on Howth Head, The Under 16 was won by Joe Connolly of Clara. In the Camogie Niamh Byrne of Clara was the winner with Danielle Morrissey of Conahy the winner in the under 14 Camogie.
