Kilkenny’s reward for winning the Leinster final is an All-Ireland semi-final date against Galway. The victors there will play the Munster champions, Cork or Waterford who face off on 9 August, in the All-Ireland final on the weekend of 21-22 August.

The game was finely balanced at the break, the teams level at 1-5 apiece. Ted Dunne netted for Kilkenny while Adam O’Grady scored Wexford’s goal. Another green flag arrived for Wexford in the second half courtesy of Simon Roche.

But Kilkenny finished stronger with Gearóid Dunne displaying the form that saw him land the man-of-the-match award while Harry Shine (0-6) and Danny Glennon (0-3) picked off their points.
