Kilkenny have qualified for the Minor and Senior All-Ireland Hurling Finals on 7th September.
Kilkenny defeated Tipperary by 3-17 to 1-14 in the All-Ireland Minor Hurling Championship Semi-Final at Croke Park.  Kilkenny led by 2-6 to 0-8 at the interval and took control early in the second half. Despite a late goal by Tipperary substitute Kieran Morris, the result was never in doubt as Kilkenny ran out deserving winners.  Kilkenny play the winners of Cork and Galway in the Final.

Supporters Club Treasurer
Eamonn Buckley (Lattin-Cullen) was elected as the Treasurer of the Tipperary GAA County Board, the position held by by the late Michael “Spike” Nolan before his untimely death.  Eamonn therefore automatically becomes Treasurer of the Tipperary Supporters Club and the Club wishes him well in his new roles.  John Ryan continues as Assistant Treasurer of the Tipperary Supporters Club.
