Cats show up for King Henry's ninth


Kilkenny 3-22 Galway 3-11:Everyone feared for Galway’s chances if the Kilkenny forwards, other than Henry Shefflin, performed like we know they can. So many of them showed up for the All-Ireland hurling final replay today, far too many for Galway to handle.

The 82,274 crowd got to witness Kilkenny capturing their 34th title and ninth this century with so many of their household names in outstanding form.

Ultimately, Galway were blown away but it didn’t help that they lost influential wing forward Cyril Donnellan to a straight red card on 49 minutes. He opened up JJ Delaney’s head with his hurl.
