Kilkenny claimed a Leinster S/F win over Wexford on Sunday to secure yet another Leinster final appearance. Kilkenny started the brighest and were 0-5 - 0-1 ahead after the first ten minutes but Wexford clawed their way back and lead 0-12 - 0-6 at half-time. After the break Kilkenny began to re-assert themselves and slowly but surely through hard work and grit regained the lead and were never to relenquish it, running out 0-23 to 1-14 winners. Offaly are next up for Kilkenny in the Leinster final which is due to be played on Jan 2nd/3rd.

On a cold December night in MW Hire O'Moore Park Portlaoise, Galway secured a berth in the U-20 Leinster Final, running out 0-19 to 1-11 winners. The first half was an even affair for the most part, but Galway opened a slight three point lead at half-time, on the restart Kilkenny drew first blood through Eoin Guilfoyle, which he followed up with a point, but from there Galway regained the impetus. From this point in the game, Galway pushed on and secured a five point win and a Leinster Final place in the process.
