Kilnadeema/Leitrim (Galway) 2-11
Youghal (Cork) 0-15

GALWAY CLUB KILNADEEMA/Leitrim booked their place in the AIB All-Ireland intermediate hurling club final today.

They had to withstand a second-half fightback from Cork club Youghal before triumphing in the Gaelic Grounds.

Kilnadeema/Leitrim laid the foundations for their victory in the opening period as they harnessed the elements to lead by 2-9 to 0-4 at the interval. Alan Mitchell and Brian Molloy, who has caught the eye for Galway underage hurling sides in recent years, bagged their goals.

Youghal fought back and were adrift by 2-10 to 0-9 with 12 minutes remaining when Kilnadeema/Leitrim were reduced to 14 men.

Youghal tagged on a further six points in the finale but Kilnadeema-Leitrim held on with Molloy raising a crucial white flag in that time to seal their success.

They will now face Kilkenny’s Rower-Inistioge in the decider  in Croke Park on Saturday February 8th.
