The Kilkenny minor hurlers will be going back to Portlaoise in the chase for All-Ireland glory.

Fresh from their Leinster final win over Offaly at O'Moore Park, Richie Mulrooney's Cats will be going back to the Laois venue next Saturday for a title showdown with old foes Galway.

The game throws-in at 5pm, but will be shown live on TG4.

Kilkenny's lead the way in the minor roll of honour with 21 titles. Their last All-Ireland success at this grade came in 2014, when Darragh Joyce captained them to a 2-17 to 0-19 win over Limerick in Croke Park.

Since then luck hasn't been on Kilkenny's side. They reached the finals in 2018 and again in 2019, but lost both - to Galway.
