The draw for the 2013 Leinster GAA Hurling Championship has been very kind to Galway.
This years champions could not have hoped for an easier draw, they got straight into the semi-final and will play of the minnows Antrim/Westmeath/Laois/Carlow/London.
The draw has not been as kind to the All-Ireland champions Kilkenny who will have to play Offaly and then the winners of Dublin/Wexford in the semi-final.
It still looks very likely that it will be a repeat of the 2012 final, with Galway trying to defend their title against Kilkenny.
