Tipperary beat Kilkenny in today's All-Ireland hurling final.

Tipperary 4-17 Kilkenny 1-18

Three goals from Lar Corbett propelled Tipperary to their first All-Ireland title in nine years and ended the Black Cats' bid to win five consecutive titles.

A crowd of 81,765 filled GAA headquarters at Croke Park in Dublin to witness the tussle between the two counties. After a closely contested first half that saw Kilkenny ace Henry Shefflin succumb to his knee injury after just a dozen minutes, the men from Tipperary took a one point lead into the interval.

Two goals in a two-minute spell early in the second half pushed Tipp on the way to the title.

Although Kilkenny tried to make a comeback, Tipperary were not to be denied, and another Corbett goal in additional time at the end was the icing on the cake for manager Liam Sheedy's men.
