Kilkenny V Galway Minor Replay confirmed for Croke Park Next Sunday

Kilkenny and Galways Minor All Ireland Hurling Semi Final replay has been confirmed.

The game takes place at 12 o clock next Sunday in Croke Park which will be followed by the other Minor Semi final and the Senior Semi Final between Galway and Tipperary.

The impact to the local club championship fixtures due this weekend will be outlined at the August County Board Meeting in Nowlan Park this evening.

Kilkenny and Galways Minors will have to do it all again after a last gasp free by Kilkennys Andy Gaffney tied the teams after extra time in Croke Park in the All Ireland Semi Final.

The Cats looked to have won the game in normal time however Galways Thomas Monaghan hit a point fromĀ  a tight angle to force extra time.

Kilkenny shot 6 unanswered points during extra time and lead by the margin but a Evan Niland goal for Galway pulled the tribesmen back into the game.

The final score was Kilkenny 26 points, Galway 2-20.

Kilkenny Minor Manager says he’s proud of his sides display despite letting go of that 6 point lead….
