Kilkenny regained their Leinster hurling crown after proving too strong for Dublin in Croke Park.

Anthony Daly’s side relinquished their provincial title, but for large parts of the encounter they were second best to the Cats in what was a cagey encounter between the two rivals.

At half-time Kilkenny were four points ahead and the lead could well have been even greater as the Dubs struggled to get to grips with the game.

A goal from Colm Cronin kept them in the hunt Colm Cronin after the forward raced ahead of Jackie Tyrrell and turning the corner-back before batting his shot into the ground past David Herity.

The second half display was even more dominant than the first as the Dublin managed just three points and went the final 22 minutes without scoring at all.

The Cats kept the foot on the pedal with TJ Reid the scorer in chief while the biggest cheer of the day was reserved for the introduction of Henry Shefflin.

The Ballyhale Shamrocks man showed his undoubted class with three points from play during his late cameo role as Kilkenny claimed another Leinster title and talk of a decline, similar to the Kerry footballers in Munster, looks to be a little premature.
