The Kilkenny minors lost out in the Leinster Final to a very strong Dublin team following an amazing game on a score of 7-12 to 6-19. Kilkenny started the stronger with two goals in quick succession in the opening few minutes, Dublin followed these up with two of their own and by half time the score was 4-8 to 3-10, Kilkenny a point to the good. On the restart a Dublin brace of goals left Kilkenny trailing, a lead Dublin were never going to surrender as it turns out. The closing stages of the game saw Kilkenny claim two more goals but the four point deficit was enough to enure Dublin would claim the Leinster minor title for 2018. Kilkenny are still in the All-Ireland series and will play again in a fortnights time against either Galway or the Munster runners-up.
