posted 20 Apr 2016, 14:32 by Martin Lalor
There was no ultimate success at the Junior Nationals in Galway last weekend, although Kilkenny contested two finals, won two plate events and had considerable success in the fun U12 competition. In the Girls U13 grade, Noelle Dowling (Mothel) lost out to Tyrone in the decider,15-10, 15-13 and in the Boys 13 and under, Jack Doyle (Windgap) had a tough tie break semi final win against fellow Kilkenny player, Billy Drennan (Galmoy), before losing to Josh Kavanagh (Wexford) in the decider 15-12, 15-8. There was success for the girls in the plate events in 13 and under and 15 and under. Kellyanne Ryan (Galmoy) won the U13 grade and Edel Mulholland (O'Loughlins) took home the 15 and under honours. In the 'fun' organised Boys U11 event, Niall Drennan (Galmoy) and Kyle Jordan (Kilfane) won all six matches that they played on the day. 
Well done to all the Kilkenny entrants in the Junior Nationals.
