The Kilkenny minor have booked their place in the All-Ireland Minor Hurling final.
The Cats faced Offaly & started off in really impressive fashion Despite an early injury to Paddy Langton. At half time the scoreboard was in favour of Richie Mulrooneys men, as the black & amber lead by 2-13 to 1-4.
The second half was a tad bit quieter from a goalscoring point of view for Kilkenny, and it was The Faithful County who managed to register two goals this time. Offalys fouling proved to be costly for them though in the end as the game finished 2-21 to 3-9, thus finally bringing an end to the 2020 Leinster championship, and crowning Kilkenny as the victors.
