'Six Years Is A Long Time Waiting - We Were A Long Time Waiting Before 2013 As Well'

Galway won their third ever All-Ireland Camogie Championship title on Sunday, defeating Kilkenny by six points at Croke Park.

Niamh Kilkenny was one of Galway's star players in the game, scoring four points.

"We are absolutely delighted," she told RTÉ after the game.

It was such a tough game. The girls gave absolutely everything out there and we are delighted to be walking up the steps of the Hogan Stand.

The management have instilled massive belief in us since the start of the year and even halfway through the championship last year when they came in. Just delighted that we came out on top for them more than anyone else.

We knew if we got enough ball into Ailish and Katherine and the girls inside they would cause damage and thank God it paid off today.

The minute we came out on the pitch, the roar of the crowd was unbelievable. Six years is a long time waiting - we were a long time waiting before 2013 as well - so we are absolutely delighted.

Also speaking to RTÉ, captain Sarah Dervan dedicated the win to an injured teammate.

"I just want to dedicate this to Tara Kenny," said Dervan.

"She was injured nine days ago and to miss an All-Ireland was so cruel."
