KILKENNY MINOR MANAGER Pat Hoban has named the same starting line-up for Sunday’s All-Ireland semi-final replay with Galway.

The sides couldn’t be separated – even after extra time last week – finishing on a scoreline of 2-20 to 26 points.

They face off at Croke Park from noon in the first of a hurling triple header, with the other semi final between Dublin and Tipperary to follow, before the main event, Galway against Tipperary in the senior semi-final.
