An estimated crowd of around 23,000 have turned up in Kilkenny tonight to welcome home the victorious county senior and minor hurlers.
The Kilkenny senior side made it three in a row on Sunday after a stunning 3-30 to 1-13 victory over Waterford.
The team arrived back in Kilkenny in McDonagh Station earlier this evening before boarding an open-top coach parade through the town.
Meanwhile in Waterford, an estimated crowd of around 14,000 were on hand to greet the defeated senior finalists on their return to the city.
