Kilkenny MHC: O'Loughlin's join James Stephens in final

O'Loughlin Gaels scored a facile win against Graigue-Ballycallan in the second semi-final of the Roinn A minor hurling championship in Dunmore under lights last night.
They will now face James Stephens in the county final in Nowlan Park on Sunday.
There was a huge crowd in Dunmore for the match. O'Loughlin's set the tone of the game with a goal in the first minute from Eoin O'Shea.

There was no let-up by O'Loughlin's in the second half as they continued to pile up the scores.
