Kilkenny made it three successive Leinster senior hurling titles when they defeated Galway in last Saturday's provincial decider at Croke Park.
Helped by 12 points from TJ Reid, the Cats put in a gritty display to emerge 0-22 to 0-17 winners as Brian Cody's side made up for the defeat against the same opposition in Salthill a few weeks previous.
Despite Galway going into the game as favourites, Kilkenny were the better side throughout with Mikey Carey, Huw Lawlor, Paddy Deegan and Adrian Mullen all putting in big displays.
Kilkenny will now go forward to an All-Ireland semi-final in three weeks time.
