Kildare have been crowned Christy Ring Cup champions after a stirring 4-18 to 2-22 win over Kerry at Croke Park.

The Kingdom were heavy favourites before the game but Brian Lawlor's Kildare hit the back of the net four times to avenge their 2007 defeat to Westmeath, their only other appearance in the Christy Ring decider.

Both sides will have to face-off again in a weeks time in a Liam MacCarthy Cup promotion / relegation decider.

In a nip and tuck game, the lead was exchanged continuously until a goal from Brian Deay, Kildare's fourth, gave the Lilywhites some breathing space they never relinquished.

Kerry, who had led by 2-10 to 2-9 at the break, were unable to find a way back after that as the Lilywhites held on for a famous victory.
