Kilkenny picked up their first piece of silverware for 2014 with a 0-24 to 1-17 win over Dublin in the Walsh Cup final at Croke Park.

The forecasted bad weather never arrived and the game was played out in decent conditions with Henry Shefflin a notable absentee from the starting fifteen and the bench.

Mark Schutte hit two points within the opening two minutes to give Dublin an early lead.

But Kilkenny quickly took control with a flurry of scores from Eoin Larkin, Padraig Walsh, Thomas Breen and Mark Kelly to move 0-7 to 0-2 ahead.

It took Dublin fifteen minutes to get on the scoreboard again when Paul Ryan slotted over a free.  Anthony Daly's men fought back with some clever play and well worked scores from their full forward line of Schutte, David O,Callaghan and Ryan. At half-time Kilkenny were 0-11 to 0-8 ahead.

In the second half Kilkenny pushed on mostly thanks to the accuracy of Larkin and went eight points up. Dublin responded in remarkable fashion but they couldn't close the gap and Kilkenny ran out four point winners.
