Yesterday, the Kildare senior hurling champions Naas met Kilkenny and Leinster champions Ballyhale in the Leinster semi final in Croke Park

After an excellent first half performance, they trailed by just one point at half time.
But, two goals in two minutes early in the 2nd half from Joey Cuddihy and Eoin Cody proved their undoing

At half time, the Wicklow club led by 2-3 to 1-4; the Maynooth goal by centre forward Roisin Forde from a penalty.
