One of the highlights of every All Ireland Build Up in Kilkenny has been the Corporate Dinner. This year the event takes place at Cillin Hill on Saturday 29th of August and our Guest Speaker will be proud Kilkenny man Bobby Kerr. The event will also have an interview with Brian Cody just one week before the Final with Galway.
We are happy to facilitate the attendance of individuals or couples at the event and it is an ideal way to relax and get into the atmosphere of All Ireland Week. Tickets for the 4 Course Dinner cost €60 and are available from Barry Hickey(087-6975212), Seamus Reade(085-1389397), Jim Freeman(087-2551507) or John Mackey (087-6509203).
As part of the All Ireland Build Up the Kilkenny Supporters Club Wagon will commence a tour of the county starting with the Iverk Show this Saturday in Piltown. All sorts of merchandise is available from John Mackey and Jim Freeman and profits here go directly to the Players Training and Holiday Fund. John and Jim will also be accepting membership of the Supporters Club - a very tangible way to support the team. Watch out for them over the next two weeks!

The Kilkenny Minors came up just short when two late Galway goals denied the team a place on All Ireland Final Day. As in the drawn game Kilkenny appeared to be well on the way to victory as they were 4 points ahead with just 6 minutes to go. But goals in the 55th and 59th minute changed everything and time ran out on a gallant squad.
