Last Sunday it was the turn of our minor stars to light up Nowlan Park. In the B decider John Lockes proved too strong for a young Dunnamaggin team while in a thrilling A decider Dicksboro finished that bit stronger to run out 2 point winners over a game O'Loughlin Gaels side.

This Sunday it is the turn of our minor players as the Kilkenny Honda Centre Roinn A and B County Finals are played in Nowlan Park. First up will be the B Final between neighbours Dunnamaggin and John Lockes at 1pm followed by the meeting of city rivals Dicksboro and O'Loughlin Gaels at 2.45pm in the A decider.
With an excellent weather forecast and admission only €5 this should be a great way to spend a few hours this Sunday. Both stands, Ardan de Gras and Ardan Breathnach, will be open.
