YOUNG HURLERS GO IN SEARCH OF SCHOOLS ALL-IRELAND GLORY - Best wishes to both JP Treacy and Paul Delahunty who are part of the Kilkenny CBS that go in search of All-Ireland glory this coming Saturday.

Kilkenny CBS play Dungarvan Colleges in the All-Ireland Senior Colleges Hurling Final this coming Saturday afternoon in Semple Stadium, Thurles with a 3.15pm throw-in.

The CBS school have only won the All-Ireland once back in 1981, and they will be hoping to make amends for last years final heartache where they lost out by two points to Nenagh CBS.

Both JP and Paul have played their part in helping the school reach the All-Ireland decider.

JP scored two points from long distance frees in the Leinster final victory over St. Kierans College, and he will be hoping to have made a full recovery from the injury which saw him ruled out of their All-Ireland semi-final victory over the Mercy Colleges of Galway.

Paul Delahunty is certain to start in attack, and he contributed a point from play in both the Leinster final and All-Ireland semi-final victories.
