KILKENNY AND DUBLIN will renew their Leinster minor hurling championship rivalry later this month after both counties booked their place in the 2018 decider this afternoon.

Kilkenny, meanwhile, are bidding to add another title to their record 57 crowns at this level, with the decider set for Croke Park on 30 June.
