Dublin 2-18 Kilkenny 1-19
The Kilkenny Minors were within seconds of qualifying for the Leinster Final at Parnell Park on Saturday when a three point lead was cancelled out by a 62nd minute Dublin goal to force the tie into extra time. Another Dublin goal just before the break in extra time proved crucial. Shane Mahoney did pull a goal back with 5 minutes remaining to leave just two points between the sides but Dublin held out in a nail biting finish

This Saturday in Parnell Park our Minor Hurling Team take on Dublin in the Electric Ireland Leinster Minor Hurling Semi-Final. Throw in is at 3pm. This is a do or die encounter with the winners qualifying for Leinster Final in July whilst the losers will be out of the championship. Kilkenny had a somewhat easy passage to the semi-final with a big win over Offaly. Meanwhile Dublin lost their opening game to Wexford but only after extra time. In the quarter-final they proved too strong for Laois and so set up this mouth watering encounter on Saturday.
