O'Loughlin Gaels and Cuala to meet in Leinster hurling decider after decisive wins
Kilkenny side O'Loughlin Gaels will meet Dublin champions Cuala in this year's Leinster club hurling final.
The Gaels were slow out of the blocks against Wexford's Oulart-The-Ballagh and conceded the first five points of the game before Mark Kelly scored a much-needed goal.
Another goal followed for Mark Bergin after the unfortunate Conor O'Leary let the ball slip through his hands and the Kilkenny side led by 2-6 to 0-10 at the interval.
Another mistake allowed Sammy Johnston to add a third goal for the winners and some excellent point-taking from Martin Comerford helped his team to a 3-17 to 0-17 win.
It was plain sailing for Cuala who 12 points to spare in a 1-19 to 1-7 victory over St Mullins of Carlow in the other semi.
