Galway retain Bob O’Keefe Cup

Galway 1-28 Kilkenny 3-15

Galway will go down in history to-day as the first Connacht team to win the Leinster final at a Munster venue in a game that produced 47 scores at Thurles. The winners lead by eleven points after twenty first half minutes 1-9 to 0-1 and by the break Kilkenny had the lead cut to eight 1-8 to 1-16 thanks to a Ger Aylward goal just before the break. The intensity of the replay was much higher that last week as Galway had Kilkenny out played and out scored in the opening twenty minutes and one wondered was there any back for the Cats but there was as the lead was down to a single point 1-20 to 3-13 in the final quarter but this Galway did not panic and hit back with points from Joe Canning and a brace from Cathal Mannion
