Leinster Final Replay To Be Held In Munster As Croke Park Booked Out

Leinster Final Replay To Be Held In Munster As Croke Park Booked Out

Galway and Kilkenny played out a tense 0-18 to 0-18 draw in the Leinster hurling final today in Croke Park.

It was a nip-and-tuck game that saw TJ Reid land 0-10 including a late equaliser from the halfway line. For Galway,  Niall Burke hit 0-4 from play but both sides hit a surprisingly high number of wides.

The consequence of the draw is that a replay is required next weekend. That game is set for Thurles, as Croke Park is unavailable due to a Michael Buble on Saturday evening.

In Croke Park's opening game, Carlow defeated Westmeath in the Joe McDonagh Cup final. It means Carlow will compete in the Leinster Championship next year.
