Kilkenny goalkeeper David Herity says the Cats ability to respond to Galway scores as the main reason for their All-Ireland success.
The Tribesmen scored two quick-fire goals, through David Burke, mid-way through the first half but Richie Power tapped in a rebound a minute later to halt the onslaught.
Speaking after the game, Herity told RTÉ Sport: “Every time Galway got a goal we seemed to reply straight away with a score. Most importantly when Galway got their second goal we came back straight down the field and equalised.
“That was probably the most important score of the game.”
Brian Cody's men were beaten by Galway in the Leinster final but simply overpowered the Connacht men with a stunning second-half display to win 3-22 to 3-11 in Croke Park today.
Herity said: “There’s no doubt about it, we had our ups and downs throughout the year. Things were going very well throughout the league and then we played well against Dublin but then Galway steam-rolled us in the Leinster final."
The Dunnamaggin clubman added: “We had to regroup, we were on the ropes a fair few times, even against Limerick at half-time, Tipperary at half-time, even Galway at half-time [in the drawn game], but we finally got on top today.
"We knew once we got on top there was no stopping us.
“It is [sweet], before the last game you could feel the nerves in the dressing room. We seemed to be an awful lot more settled coming into the game this time.”
