The All Ireland team semi-finals and Finals The All Ireland Semi-finals and finals were hosted  by   St Josephs H.B.C Wexford and we thank them for their hospitality on the day .              

Kilkenny under 12/13 team of  Billy Drennan, Gearoid Phelan,  Padraig Lennon, Kyle Dunne, Jamie Maher,  Padraig Foley,   Jack Doyle, Sean Purcell,  Had a great run in Leinster defeating Laois and Wexford in the Leinster Final. They got the day off to a great  start.  Monaghan provided the opposition but their challenge was brushed aside by this very talented team giving the opposition  little or no chances  defeating them 90-27. In the final Clare provided the opposition. The Kilkenny lads on a high after their semi final win continued on their winning ways  easily accounted for a good  Clare team in the final winning  80-28. This was a supreme team performance by this close knit unit   

 In the final Sean Barron (Windgap) substituted for Padraig Lennon.  Padraig was unavailable on the day.  Well done to all the players                   


The under 14/15 team of 14/15 team.

Billy O'Neill.    Dylan Crehan .  Robert Culleton.   Conor Drennan. Patrick Doyle.   Shane Cullen. Jack Hayes.  Jack Buggy. Had great performances over Laois and a great Leinster Final win over  Wexford  . Put this team in the All Ireland Semi-Final   unfortunately after some great games and effort by all the players they lost in the Semi final to Monaghan by the narrowest of margins 69-71. This was a tough game to lose all the lads put in a 100% effort.  A little bit of luck and the result would have went in their favour Hard luck Lads. For the record Clare defeated Monaghan in this final 


Super performance by our under 16/17 Team 

Cathal Barry. Connor Condon, Jack Crehan   James Culleton Eoin Regan. What a comeback after losing the first game Cathal and Conor upped their game playing superb handball they won the second game. This gave a glimmer of hope to Jack and James. They battled on winning ace after ace to win their first game  with Tipperary needing 10  Aces.  A big task ahead for  the Kilkenny lads . But they were well up for the challenge great serving and retrieving along with some well placed shots saw them win the second game to give them Victory. This was a great game.  Great effort. skill and and a never say die attitude saw this bunch of lads defeat Tipperary in a very memorable  All Ireland Final 46-42. a Super win Lads


To reach any All Ireland semi-final/final is a great achievement but to reach 3 is a testament to the players and their mentors. Great credit go to all involved.

Well done lads this was a super performance by all 3 teams
