Leinster U21 Final

Congratulations to Wally Walsh who was part of the Kilkenny U21 team that won the Leinster title on Wednesday night. Kilkenny comprehensively beat Laois, in Portlaoise on the scoreline of 4-24 to 1-13 to take the cup back to Noreside for the 1st time since 2009. Wally lined out at right corner forward but regularly swapped with his full forward colleagues. Wally so often the goal scorer turned supplier last night, setting up the 1st 2 Kilkenny goals in the opening 15 minutes. Powerful runs and lay-offs from the big man allowed Ger Aylward and John Power find the Laois net. Wally went on to score 2 points and set-up a number of points for his team mates, proving a constant thorn in the Laois defence.
