Kilkenny claimed a spot in the Leinster Final against a determined Wexford in Nowlan Park last night. Kilkenny started brightly in the first half but Wexford would have been by far the happier team at the break leading on a scoreline of 1-11 to 0-7. After the break Kilkenny's renewed urgency whittled the lead down to the bare minimum and with 13 minutes to go they drew level. From here a heart-stopping few minutes were to follow where it was tit for tat strikes but Kilkenny were to run out the eventual winner by a single point.

Kilkenny's recent run of wins came to a halt in Salthill on Sunday when Brian Cody's charges came up against a determined Galway outfit. Kilkenny were against the breeze in the first half and were behind by 4 points at half-time when the scoreline was 1-5 to 1-9. Little changed in the second half, Kilkenny failed to close the gap and by the time Fergal Horgan blew the final whistle the scorline read 1-22 to 2-11 in Galway's favour, the final quarter proving very testing for Kilkenny. All this means the game Vs Wexford on June 9th will be a crucial one, which will surley attract a massive crowd to Nowlan Park at 7pm on that night.
