CBS Win - 10 days ago, Kilkenny CBS defeated their rivals and city neighbours St. Kierans College to win the Leinster Senior Colleges Final for the first time since 2008 on a 2-9 to 1-7 scoreline.
Young Irelands of Gowran were represented as both JP Treacy and Paul Delahunty played their part in the schools victory.
JP scored two frees from long distance during the opening-half, and did plenty of good defensive work, while Paul scored an early second-half point that put the CBS into a 6 point lead that they would never subsequently relinquish.
Kilkenny CBS now march on into the All-Ireland semi-finals which is scheduled to be played over this coming St. Patricks weekend.
