U21 Win

Kilkenny had a 5 point victory over Dublin in the Leinster U21 Hurling Championship in Nowlan Park last Wednesday night. This was a special night for the Bennettsbridge club with 3 players lining out in the Black and Amber. Both Sean Morrissey and Liam Blanchfield managed to raise the white flag but it was their workrate that most impressed. The game had no goals with both sides having spells of dominance. Jason Cleere was comfortable at centre back and his first touch and deliveries were always first class. Next up in the Semi-Final, Kilkenny face Westmeath who shocked us 12 months ago. We wish the lads continued success at this grade for the summer ahead.

ART GROUP

The Art Group will meet this Saturday at the usual time.
