KILKENNY are on a six match unbeaten run in competitive competition.
The last time they were beaten was in the second round of the Allianz Hurling League by Tipperary.
They have put a run of victories together against Waterford, Clare, Cork, Galway in the League semi-final and Tipperary in the League decider in Nowlan Park, and now Offaly in the Leinster championship.
Leinster is Kilkenny’s hurling domain. The county won the Bob O’Keeffe Cup 68 times, a figure which is topped by Kerry in the Munster senior football championship.
The Kingdom won the Southern titles a massive 74 times, the best of all.
