Saturday was a busy day in Nowlan Park with the Junior Footballers involved in All-Ireland Semi-Final action against Galway. Having won out the British Championship, hopes were high that Kilkenny would make the final. Galway were strong throughout the game leading by twelve points at half-time. On the restart Galway didn't relent in the second half running out 2-22 to 2-8 winners. Kilkenny have fought a good solid battle throughout the Junior campaign this year and will no doubt re-group in the months ahead to prepare for 2019.
