Kilkenny suffered a second successive defeat in the Allianz League when a rejuvenated Clare side were full value for their thirteen point winning margin over a disappointing Kilkenny side. The defeat puts Kilkenny pointless on their own on the bottom of the table and the only consolation being that all the other teams, other than Tipperary, have all lost one game. Next up for Kilkenny will be Cork in Nowlan Park on Sunday 5th March. Cork, having had an impressive opening night win over Clare, suffered a bad defeat against Dublin at the weekend.

There was a huge Mooncoin presence in Croke Park on Saturday but they came away somewhat disappointed having suffered just a one point loss to a fine Mayfield side in the AIB Junior Final. Mooncoin found themselves 6 points in arrears at one stage but bravely fought back to draw level with time almost up. But an injury time point from Man of the Match Nicky Kelly saw the Cork side home on a final score 2-16 to 1-18. Although obviously disappointed Mooncoin can reflect on a very satisfactory year and look forward to life in the intermediate grade in Kilkenny in 2017.
