Kilfane players Jack Holden and Dearbhail O’Keeffe represent Leinster in the All-Ireland Gael Linn on Saturday in Kingscourt, Co. Cavan. Both players have been very impressive in the county and Leinster campaign and will be hoping to bring that form to the All-Ireland series.
It will be a busy and exciting weekend for the players and their families as they head to Croke Park on Sunday to cheer on their hurling club, Thomastown in the junior club All-Ireland final.
