Kilkenny claim tight win over Dublin

Kilkenny have secured a Leinster final spot against Galway following a 3-20 to 2-22 victory against Dublin in Croke Park on Saturday evening.   Kilkenny started slowly but following two goals mid-way throught the first half, looked in control with the scoreboard reading 3-13 to 0-7 at half-time.

On the restart the game followed a similar pattern as the first half but in the final quarter Dublin drove at Kilkenny and got maximum return for their efforts and with the game in the melting pot, up stepped Huw Lawlor to claim victory with the winning point in additional time.    Game over, plenty of lessons learned, onward and upward to the Leinster final in a fortnights time.
