Kilkenny are Leinster senior hurling champions for a 73rd time after overcoming a depleted Dublin by 1-25 to 0-19 at Croke Park this evening.

A positive Covid-19 case in the Dublin camp led to the late withdrawals of four players - Cian O'Callaghan, Ronan Hayes, Fergal Whitely and Oisin O'Rorke - from their team, but they battled manfully to trail by 0-9 to 0-12 at half-time.

But in trademark fashion, the Cats pulled away in the closing stages with TJ Reid's late goal from a penalty putting the result beyond doubt.
