The winger scored a hat-trick in each half to help the national side rack up 66 points while conceding just 12 to the provincial men.

The Irish Times’ John O’Sullivan was at Donnybrook to watch Kennedy in action and his report also noted the handling skill of Carolan’s men as they ran in 10 tries, most of them finished off by Kennedy.
