Kilkenny lead Offaly by three points at half time in the Senior Hurling National League tie at Nowlan Park. It is 0-10 to 0-7 after a scrappy first period in which defences were on top. The Kilkenny attack always looked the more dangerous and might have grabbed a goal of two but Offaly never looked capaple of raising a green flag.
There was bad luck for Kilkenny star Richie Power when he was stretched off injured just before the break. He had scored eight of Kilkenny’s first half points.
FREEBOOTERS bounced back from their FAI Junior Cup defeat in Cork last weekend with a deserved 3-0 win over East End in the Premier League.
The Blues were in control for the most part at the Fair Green and goals by Eddie Clifford, Ben Ryan and Dessie Hayes did the business for them.

THE reform of the CAP was highlighted in the European Parliament. George Lyon, MEP set down the parameters on the report he is drawing up on this subject during a meeting of the Agriculture Committee.Lyon recently visited Dublin for a series of high level meetings in preparation for this report.
MEP Liam Aylward’s reaction:
THE AGM of the Charlie Smith Branch of The Labour Party was a historic occasion as for the first time ever in the branch’s history a woman was elected chairperson.
“Tonight is yet another laudable result for the Labour Party in Kilkenny, by the elevation of another woman to a leadership role in our organisation,” said Councillor Michael O’Brien.
He said that Labour had the best proportionate political gender balance from a woman’s perspective in The Dáil and in local government in Kilkenny.
