With the Minor Grade changing to Under 17 from next season and to address the fall off of players between minor and under 21 a proposal has been formulated to introduce a new under 19 grade for 2018. To achieve this some of the other adult competitions are proposed to be streamlined.
The proposal was aired at the recent County Committee Meeting and received a very positive response. The proposal is now being discussed at Club level and a decision will be taken at the November County Committee Meeting.

This Sunday in Nowlan Park it will be the turn of the Intermediates in the Michael Lyng Motors sponsored Intermediate County Final. Graigue Ballycallan will take on St Patricks of Ballyragget in the decider which will have a 3.30pm throw in. It will be preceded by the Kilkenny Honda Centre Minor B Final between Dunnamaggin and Mullinavat at 1.30pm.
Both Graigue Ballycallan and St Patricks had very impressive wins in their respective semi-finals over Glenmore and Tullaroan. It all points to an exciting final which is very difficult to call.
Admission to the double header will be by ticket only. Tickets will be on sale right around the Ground costing €15 for adults and €10 for students/pensioners. Under 16's are free.
