Kilkenny Swat Waterford Aside
Tuesday, 9th September 2008

Sunday, September 7

All-Ireland SHC Final

Kilkenny 3-30 Waterford 1-13

All-Ireland MHC Final

Kilkenny 3-6 Galway 0-13

In the end even the score was symbolic - 3 goals representing the much sought after three-in-a-row and 30, the number of titles amassed before todays game by both Cork and Kilkenny. Now Kilkenny stand alone with 31 titles, burying any Deise challenge in an absolutely merciless first half, leading by 17 points at the break. Waterford didn't get their first score from play until 48 minutes had elapsed with big players like Dan Shanahan, Eoin Kelly and John Mullane made to look less than ordinary by every Kilkenny player. Shefflin, Brennan, Lyng, Fitpatrick, Comerford... the whole squad in fact - awesome to a man.

Kilkenny this year have been so good, there isn't a player who shouldn't get an all star, who could you leave out ? And the good news for the rest of the country is that they have now won the Minor and Intermediate titles with the U21 final to come. It would not be unreasonable to expect The Cats to win another 6 titles in the next 8 years. Fair play to them, we may never see anything like this again, enjoy !
