Kilkenny won All-Ireland title number 36 this afternoon as they saw off Galway by four points in a 1-22 to 1-18 win at Croke Park. Much like the hurling championship itself, the game only fired occasionally but that didn't stop people from revelling in the contest all the same.
Here is how some people reacted on Twitter.
TJ Reid says Kilkenny's win was"unbelievable". I'd put a KK win on my Top 3 list of Believable Things along with gravity and rain. #KKvGAL— Colm O'Regan (@colmoregan) September 6, 2015
I'm a little terrified of this generation of Kilkenny infants who have never known defeat. #KKvGAL— Eimear Ryan (@eimear_ryan) September 6, 2015
They are in high spirits at least. After Mayo's defeat to Dublin yesterday, Galway are left to carry the torch for western underdogs and their fans are relishing the prospect of slaying Brian Cody's Kilkenny beast this afternoon.
