Limerick turned the game around in the second half to win a fourth All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship in a row with a nine-point victory and break Kilkenny hearts.

The final score was 2-15 to 0-30 in favour of the Treaty.

The Cats were the better team in the first half and went in with a 1-09 to 0-9 lead.

Kilkenny came out flying and at times looked like they could pull away, however, Limerick grew into the game to prevent that from happening.
