Kilkenny heavyweights St Kieran's College and Kilkenny CBS remain in the hunt for All-Ireland Post Primary Schools SH honours following today's quarter-final fixtures.
St Kieran's got the better of Gort CC by 1-10 to 0-5 and their prize is a penultimate stage clash with Munster winners Ardscoil Ris of Limerick on Wednesday, March 21.
Meanwhile, Conor Drennan was on target with 0-13 as Kilkenny CBS survived a late scare against Midleton CBS.
The defeated Munster finalists trailed by 11 points at one stage but a spirited comeback fell short as the Noresiders held on for a minimum margin victory - 0-16 to 2-9.
They now advance to a last four showdown with Presentation College Athenry on Monday March, 19.
