St. Kieran's College and Dublin North will contest the Leinster PP Schools senior hurling 'A' championship final following their respective victories over St. Peter's College and Kilkenny CBS this afternoon.

League champions St. Kieran's never looked back after Adrian Mullen's 32nd minute goal paved the way for a 2-13 to 2-8 win in Enniscorthy. It put the Kilkenny outfit 2-6 to 1-6 ahead and the game was ended as a contest before Jack Nobbs scored a late consolation goal for the Wexford side.

Ross Banville scored 1-5 in the first half for Peter's, but was left to rue a missed penalty in the second half which came back off the upright. Mullen top-scored for the winners with 1-4, while David O'Carroll and Eoin Cody scored 1-1 and 0-4 respectively.

In the other semi-final at O'Moore Park, Conor Berrigan and Cian Derwin struck early goals as Dublin North overcame Kilkenny CBS by 3-12 to 0-18. 

Free-taker Conor Drennan replied with 0-8 to give Kilkenny CBS a 0-10 to 2-3 half-time lead, but a third goal from sub Billy Ryan on the restart edged the Dubs back in front and went on to win, despite Drennan helping himself to 0-13 in total.

All is not lost for Peter's or CBS who will playoff for the right to compete in the All-Ireland series which Dublin North - as a combined team - are excluded from.
