Brian Cody's men claimed a Leinster Final berth for the second year in a row following an epic encounter with Wexford. The contest was a hard fought affair with no inch given by either side. The sides ended all square 1-18 to 0-21 and given Dublin had just beaten Galway in Parnell Park, both Kilkenny and Wexford will have to do it all again on June 30th with the Bob O'Keeffe the prize on offer for the victors.
Meanwhile the Kilkenny minors overcame a resilient Kildare in Newbridge to also secure a Leinster final berth against Wexford on Saturday June 29th. The opening quarter was close but Kilkenny showed their scoring power in the run up to to half time, a period that proved crucial to their win ultimately, running out 2-20 to 0-15 winners.
Both of Kilkenny's Celtic Challenge teams came up just short on the day with Kilkenny Amber losing out to Galway McDonaghs on a score of 2-25 to 0-17 while Kilkenny Black lost out to Dublin Plunketts, the final score there 2-13 to 1-10.
The Junior Footballers also took to the field in Scotland against the home side but Scotland claimed victory running out 1-15 to 0-11 point winners to claim a spot in the All-Britian Junior Football Final.
In the opening match of the day from Wexford Park Blacks and Whites were victorious over Glemore in the Leinster League Club Division 2 Final. The final score 3-12 to 1-9.
