The ladies secured their first league title since 2008 with a 1-15 to 0-4 win over Clare.

Aoife Neary with the goal for the champions in a very one sided affair.

The men’s side were pushed all the way by Tipperay in their league final.

The game went to extra time after Kieran Bergin levelled it after 70 minutes.

TJ Reid’s two penalty’s looked to have given Kilkenny the win before Bergin late intervention made it 2-17 to 1-20 after 70 minutes.

Extra time was a tight affair until Reid’s 11 point of the day secured the win with just seconds left to make it 2-25 to 1-27 after almost 100 minutes of hurling
