For the second time in three years Kilkenny won the British Inter County Junior Football Championship. They defeated Warwickshire in the Final 3-16 to 1-6. Along the way they had victories over Scotland (4-17 to 0-8) and Lancashire (1-14 to 0-15). As British Champions they qualified to play Leinster Champions Meath in the All Ireland Junior Semi-Final. Kilkenny were very much in this game at half time trailing the firm favourites by just three points. However a strong second half performance saw Meath run out 2-21 to 2-08 winners.
