The Dubs are taking advantage of their first Leinster Championship game outside Croke Park in 10 long years as they paint Kilkenny blue ahead of tonight's quarter-final clash with Laois.

Much has been made of the Dubs playing all their games in GAA HQ but fans have always maintained that they would love a road trip to go and support their heroes.

And they have one today as thousands descend on Nowlan Park.
