In the 14 years they have played in Leinster, they've won it 3 times, Kilkenny have won it 9 times in that period (Dublin and Wexford 1 each)."
3 isn't bad either, considering that no 'Connacht referees' seem to be rostered for Leinster championship games. Since Barry Kelly retired anyway!!!!!

And all of their games until very recently were played in Leinster.

Compare that to the previous 14 years in the Leinster championship. How many non-KK titles were won?

Yes, indeed! A very, very second best; 300% more titles to the Cats. The stats don't lie!

Well Wexford won it three times and Offaly won it in the initial year. In the Final eleven years they won 10. But is this that surprising?. No Minor or Under 21 All Ireland, or National League Title has been won by any of the 'Real' Leinster counties, apart from Kilkenny, in fully thirty years.

I could bet you one thing if Galway were in Leinster from 2000 onwards (arbitrary example) they would not have won more than 1-2 Leinster titles between then and their eventual inclusion in 2012 or whenever it was.

Four. In the previous 14 years to Galway entering Leinster, KK won it 10 times, Wexford 3 and Offaly 1.

So, there has been hardly any difference to Kilkenny's dominance in Leinster since Galway arrived.

The change happened when Cody took over, from 1998-2009 KK won them all except one, Kk 10, Wex 1.

In the last 10 years BC, Before Cody, Kilkenny only won 3 Leinsters. So you probably have the great man to thank for being in Leinster at all; )

The only reason he'd want Galway in Leinster would be to sharpen his team for the AISF!

Wrong, Kilkenny won 4 Leinster titles in the 10 years prior to Cody taking over.

After Offaly beat Kilkenny in the All Ireland Final. He was in charge for the 1999 championship.
