The Kilkenny Minors landed their 21st All Ireland title in Croke Park on Sunday with a well merited 2-17 to 0-19 win over firm favourites Limerick in the Electric Ireland sponsored Final. The team were hosted in style in Inistioge on Monday night when Captain Darragh Joyce brought the Irish Press Cup to the village to cap a fantastic year for the local club.
