Our Hurling Team received a tremendous welcome home from thousands of fans in Kilkenny after their All Ireland win. You can show your appreciation in a very tangible way by supporting the Players' Training and Holiday Fund Raffle. Tickets (€10) are available in every club or from Nowlan Park Office. Tickets can also be purchased on-line HERE.
First Prize is €5,000 with 2nd and 3rd prizes of flat screen TV's courtesy Electro City. The draw takes place at half time at the County Senior Final on Nov 16th.
Following the weekend games the way is now clear for the semi-final draw in the J J Kavanagh and sons Junior Hurling Championship. The draw takes place at the October County Board Meeting tomorrow night Monday 6th at 8.30pm in Nowlan Park.
In the hat will be Bennettsbridge who had a very comprehensive victory over Piltown on Saturday. Joining them in the draw will be Mooncoin who always had the measure of Kilmacow but had a nervy finish when Kilmacow goaled with 5 minutes remaining and despite Mooncoin not scoring in the final ten minutes they held on for a deserved victory. The Galmoy v Blacks and Whites game was a close affair but Galmoy fired 4 unanswered points in the last 10 minutes to close out the game. The fourth semi-finalist will come from the Section B Final between city sides O'Loughlin Gaels and James Stephens who had a big win over St Martins.
Dicksboro 4-15 Thomastown 1-3
