The Kilkenny Under 14 Football Development Squad travelled to Longford on Saturday to participate in a Cross Provincial Blitz involving teams from Longford and Leitrim. The squad performed extremely well and rounded off the day with a 6-13 to 2-10 win over the Longford team. One of the most pleasing aspects of the tournament was that 11 different players contributed to the scoring over the two games.

Barrow Rangers 1-16 Naomh Eoin 3-9.
Barrow Rangers captured the J J Kavanagh & Sons Junior All County League Title with an exciting one point win over Carlow's Naomh Eoin last evening. The winners seemed to be in a commanding position in the first half but a Myshall goal just on half time left just 4 points between the sides (1-9 to 1-5). A second Naomh Eoin goal three minutes into the second haf narrowed the lead to just 2 points and 10 minutes in Naomh Eoin's third goal saw them in front by 2. With five minutes to go the sides were level but a Ciaran Doyle point from a 65 two minutes from time was enough to see the Paulstown men over the line.
