Kilkenny’s senior, intermediate and junior champions claimed an incredible treble in Leinster titles this weekend. Junior champions Dunnamaggin got the ball rolling in Nowlan Park on Saturday with a 3-17 to 1-11 win over Meath champions Na Fianna. Graigue-Ballycallan continued this winning run by seeing off Portlaoise GAA, to claim the Leinster intermediate title. The margin of victory was eight points, 2-17 to 0-15. On Sunday the treble was completed when Ballyhale overcame the Dublin champions Ballyboden/St Enda’s in Netwatch Cullen Park in what were at times terrible conditions. The scoreboard read 2-21 to 0-11 at full time. All three teams will go forward to the All-Ireland semi-finals in the new year.

Tullogher Rosbercon made the short trip to New Ross yesterday and recorded a rare football win for a Kilkenny club side in the first round of the Leinster Junior Club Football Championship.
The Southerners scores a deserved win over Wexford Junior champions Naomh Eanna from Gorey by a two-point margin. The Wexford side perhaps had one eye on the opening round of the Leinster Senior Club Hurling Championship next Sunday where they meet Camross from Laois in Portlaoise, but they really can have no complaints with the result of the game against Tullogher.
