There were several games in Kilkenny across various different grades on Tuesday night.
In the Michael Lyng Motors Hyundai Senior Hurling League Division 3 final, Dunnamaggin eventually got the better of Young Irelands in a dramatic penalty shootout.
Ted Drea and Denis Walsh exchanged first half goals, but Dunnamggin’s shooting efficiency looked as though it would be the key determinant in a tight affair as they raced into an eight-point lead early in the second half.
However, Young Irelands refused to give in and a cluster of points alongside a second goal proved to be the perfect formula to bring them back into contention before a late surge saw them salvage a penalty shootout against all the odds after a 1-22 to 2-19 draw in normal time.

All the penalties were expertly dispatched other than Young Irelands’ third attempt which proved costly as Dunnamaggin sealed a memorable victory with captain Darragh O’Keeffe being presented with the cup following the clash in Pairc na Seamroga.
Elsewhere, in Round 5 of the Countrystyle Foods Junior D Hurling League, Thomastown and Clara played out a relatively low scoring affair in Thomastown with the home team securing a three-point defeat of their opponents on a scoreline of 0-16 to 0-13.
There were two games down for decision in the Kilkenny Honda Centre Minor Hurling League.
Young Irelands notched up 9-13 as they cruised past Ballinkillen in Roinn C, while St Martin’s defeated James Stephens in Pairc Sheamuis Stiophan in an intense clash that finished 2-14 to 2-18 in favour of the visitors.
