General Notes
Team News
JB Carr
Disappointment for the JB Carr team who were beaten by Castlecomer in the JB Carr trophy yesterday. It was always going to be a big ask, with all matches being played in ‘Comer.
In what was a very tough contest and Kilkenny giving shots to their opponents, they lost three matches on the 16th, one on the19th and the final match was called in but, were three down at the time. Sincere thanks to all the team for their brilliant efforts.

John Burke & Ray Cody – Brian Cullen & Prionnais OhAilinn – Noel Casey & Larry Gittens,
Tom Moore & PJ Martin – John Geoghegan & Noel Maher – Dick Daly & Paddy Smee
Managers:- Des Woods & Jim Meredith
