Leinster Senior Hurling Championship Round 1
Cian O’Sullivan hit a late score rescueing a draw against Antrim in their opening Leinster Hurling Championship tie at Corrigan Park yesterday.
Micheál Donoghue’s senior panel looked in trouble trailing for large parts of yesterday’s game and were 0-06 behind the hosts at the end of the third quarter. The fought back and a goal from talisman Donal Burke edged their noses in front with three minutes to spare.
Antrim responded with the next two scores and looked like they could steal a win but O’Sullivan’s late score split the decision to share the points.
Kilkenny 1-21 Dublin 2-16
O’Neills.com Leinster U20 Hurling Championship
Disappointment for Dublin’s U20 Hurling panel as they lost out to Kilkenny yesterday afternoon at Nowlan Park. Both Dublin and Kilkenny had beaten Galway and Wexford ahead of this game securing their places in the knockout stages. So this game gave both teams the opportunity to maybe experiment a little.
The sides were deadlocked on 1-09 a piece at the interval but Kilkenny Kicked on in the second half to push on for the win. A Liam Garrigan goal late in added time gave Dublin the chance to draw the game but a Kilkenny converted free was enough to give the home side the victory.

Leinster U16A Camogie Championship
Rachel Rogers and the Dublin U16A Camogie panel can turn their focus to this year’s All Ireland Championship as their Leinster championship journey came to a close earlier today.
While it’s been a disappointing provincial run, with Dublin on the end of another defeat this afternoon it’s good preperation and great experience for the girls as they get ready for the grand stage.
Laois 2-09 Dublin 4-30
Leinster Senior Football Championship Quarter Finals
Dublin got the defence of their Leinster Senior Football title off to the perfect start this afternoon beating Laois at O’Moore Park by a 27 point margin to advance to next weekend’s Semi Finals.
Helped hugely by a potent forward line, Con O’Callaghan, Colm Basquel, Ciaran Kilkenny and Lee Gannon all hit the net in the opening half to give Dublin a massive lead at half time, something that was virtually impossible for Laois to cancel out.
Eoin Lowry did give Laois a fighting chance with a brace of goals that would have left Dessie Farrell with something to work on in training.
Dublin had eleven scorers on today’s score sheet Including 1-07 from Con O’Callaghan, 1-05 from Colm Basquel and 1-04 from Ciaran Kilkenny.
