Well done to Huw Lawlor who put in a fine performance with the Kilkenny u21s during the victory over Dublin in the Leinster u21 Semi-Final.
This weekend is the much anticipated Leinster Senior Hurling Semi Final clash against Wexford in Wexford Park. We wish all the Kilkenny Panel and O’Loughlin’s lads Mark Bergin and Paddy Deegan the very best. Tickets were like gold dust but our hard working secretary produced her own loaves and fishes moment to sort out those members who needed one. Lovely Hurling
We wish all our young players who sit state exams over the next couple of weeks the very best of luck. When it’s all over St.John’s Park is open to whack a sliotar about and rid those frustrations. Good luck, read carefully and keep calm.
