ELECTRIC IRELAND MINOR B CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL: Kerry minor hurlers had an impressive win over a fancied Meath side in Nenagh on Saturday before plenty of Kerry support 1-19 to 3-9. Kerry were leading by 12 points with 10 minutes left on the clock when Meath struck for their second goal and when they scored their third goal a few minutes later it was backs to the wall by Kerry to strive to keep their composure in the last few minutes and they stuck admirably to the task. Great celebrations followed and they deserve a massive vote of congratulations for their efforts all year. ALL IRELAND U21 final this Weekend with Kerry again in action. Best of luck to team and management.
