At this evening's County Committee Meeting in Nowlan Park Brian Cody was ratified as Kilkenny Manager for the 2018 season. Derek Lyng and James Mc Garry continue as selectors while Michael Dempsey will be Physical Trainer.
The decision sees Brian Cody take the helm in Kilkenny for a remarkable 20th year.
Despite a brave second half effort Kilkenny were unable to come to grips with a powerful Limerick performance in the Bord Gais Energy Under 21 Final played in front of a crowd of over 15,000 in Semple Stadium on Saturady evening. Having played with a strong wind Kilkenny found themselves 7 points in arrears at the break (0-11 yo 0-4). Kilkenny reduced the arrears to 4 points at one stage in the second half but Limerick deservedly pulled away again to run out winners on a final scoreline of 0-17 to 0-11.
