Kilkenny’s Leinster Final preparations received a boost on Monday with Tommy Walsh confirming that he will be fit for the provincial decider against Dublin on Sunday week.

Walsh missed the semi-final win over Wexford because of a shoulder injury, but returned to training last week. “It’s all systems go,” said the wingback. “I’m back into the games and all. I’ve two weeks now to get it right.”

Kilkenny have lost to Dublin in their twice to date this year but are still the raging hot favourites to take the Leinster title next month. Despite the two sides having a tough league final, Tommy Walsh does not believe that discipline was an issue:

“I don’t think we really lost our discipline that much. A lot of incidents go on in games right throughout the country, but in Croke Park there are cameras that see absolutely everything.

“If there was the same number of cameras at every game in the country in the last few weeks there’d be a lot more incidents being talked about. Our discipline is top notch,it always was, and we have never really had problems.”
