The Kilkenny minors despite a stunning second half comeback against Galway came up just short against the western opposition, the scoreline was 2-16 to 3-16 after 60 minutes. Galway started the brighter and had a ten point lead at the break 0-6 to 2-10 but Kilkenny dug deep and rallied strongly just after half time pushing Galway all the way. It was a great test for the Kilkenny minors with bigger days soon to come.

The Leinster stage of the Poc Fada took place on Saturday in the Comeragh Mountains and Kilkenny were represented by Michael Kirwan (U-16) Glenmore and Jamie Harkin (Adult) Bennettsbridge. Michael Kirwan claimed the U-16 Leinster title following in the footsteps of his father who also won the U-16 and adult Poc Fada's in the past. Jamie Harkin was 5th in the adult category, having won the U-16 category only two years ago. Well done to both on representing Kilkenny with distinction.
