Carrickshock, who lost Kilkenny senior hurling finals in 2010 and 2013, led a low-scoring affair by 0-7 to 0-3 at the interval and powered home in the second-half.

The newly crowned champions lost John Tennyson to a red card on 42 minutes, but they outscored Tullogher-Rosbercon by 0-4 to 0-1 down the home straight, with county star John Power among those on target.

Kevin Farrell scored five points from placed balls for the victors. Tullogher-Rosbercon scored just twice from play, through All-Star forward Walsh and Liam Barron.

Otherwise they relied on the frees of Cian O’Donaghue to keep them in touch, and that lack of scoring threat from play ultimately cost them.
