Dublin National Hurling League Champions 2011
Dublin won the Division 1 title after a 0-22 to 1-7 win against Kilkenny in the final at Croke Park It was their first league title in seventy two years. For a very long time, hurling finals at Croke Park had been occasions when two teams would travel from across the country to the imposing neutral stadium in the capital’s Northside.
But there was a palpable feeling of a Dublin home tie on May Day as a swathe of blue filled Headquarters, and the Dublin team repaid the ever-growing support they were getting by working like dogs to ensure that a famous victory would be theirs.
