REMARKABLY, KILKENNY GO in search of their first Leinster title in three years this summer – having won 13 of the previous 14 titles before then.

Galway will try and reach their third consecutive final, and in doing so replicate their 2012 form and win their second Bob O’Keefe Cup.

Anthony Daly will try to bring back to back titles to the capital for the first time since 1942 and win the Leinster championship for their 25th time.

It’s nearly 20 years since Offaly’s last triumph in 1995, ten years since Wexford’s last, while Laois last won in 1949.

Antrim face Wexford this weekend,while Galway face Laois, and perhaps they could cause a huge upset this year?

Kilkenny will have the bit between their teeth this year and surely they can’t go three years without a title for the first time since 1996.

Who do you think will win the Leinster title?

Poll Results:

Four days in Portugal for the Dub hurlers but they won’t be enjoying the sun
