Kilkenny 3-19 Galway 1-17
In front of a sell out crowd at sunny Tullamore on Saturday evening Kilkenny eventually saw off the challenge of a dogged Galway with T J Reid again picking up a man of the match performance. There was little between the sides in the opening half with Kilkenny turning over just two points ahead 1-11 to 1-9. Kilkenny started strongly on the resumption with 4 unanswered points. But Galway continued to bring the game to Kilkenny. A Joe Canning side line cut reduced the margin to 3 points 10 minutes in. An Aidan Fogarty goal in the 53rd minute appeared to be decisive but again Galway found themselves just 4 in arrears entering the final 5 minutes. But this weekend the ending was different with T J Reid capping a fine performance with his second goal as time ran out. Kilkenny now meet Dublin in the Leinster Final in Croke Park next Sunday with the same two teams meeting in the Minor decider. Galway head to Semple Stadium next Saturday evening to play Tipperary in the Qualifiers.

The Kilkenny Team for tomorrow's sell out replay will not be finalised until before throw in.
Meanwhile the Leinster Council has announced that the game is now a complete sell out. They have stressed that there will be no tickets on sale in Tullamore on Saturday and the Gardai have warned supporters are not to travel without tickets.
All the Stand Tickets for Saturday's replay have now been sold. There are still Terrace tickets available at €10 (Adults) and €3 (Under 16's) from the usual Centra and Supervalu outlets. The Terrace in O Connor Park Tullamore runs the full length of O' Connor Park and is stepped and barriered.
Throw In is at 7pm. The Kilkenny team will be announced as usual on this website on Friday evening after 9pm.
With Kilkenny leading 3-21 to 2-15 after 65 minutes few could have believed that this game would go to a replay. But Galway goals in the 66th, 68th and 71st minutes changed all that. Henry Shefflin pushed Kilkenny ahead with a gem of a point in the 72nd minute only for Joe Canning to land a similar effort from the puckout. And so it is back to Tullamore next Saturday(7pm) with the prize for the winners a Leinster Final outing against Dublin on Sunday 6th July while the losers will face Tipperary in Thurles on the previous evening.
