UCD defeated the All-Ireland Champions Kilkenny at Nowlan Park today to claim their first ever Walsh Cup title.

Inter-county stars Brendan Murphy of Offaly, and Wexford's Redmond Barry were the chief providers for the College side with 1-8 between them, as an under strength Kilkenny could only manage 5 points throughout, all from Jimmy Coogan.

Wexford Student John O'Connor had a first half goal for UCD, who held an 11 Point advantage at the break, against a Kilkenny team that only included one player from their All-Ireland winning team.
