Well done to Paddy Deegan who played his role in Kilkenny’s dramatic win over Dublin in last Sundays Leinster Championship match in Parnell Park. Further club involvement with the minor panel where Conor Kelly (14 pts – 12 of which were frees), Jamie Young, David Fogarty and Niall Higgins all represented the parish on the Kilkenny Minor team that had a great win over Dublin. Senior Club Manager Niall Bergin was also a selector with the team. Well done all. Next weekend all players are out again with Minors playing Wexford in Nowlan Park on Saturday and the Seniors playing Offally at the same venue on Sunday. Please show your appreciation for our players .
