The Cats were crowned Liam MacCarthy Cup winners for a 35th time, with all-conquering manager Brian Cody masterminding a 10th success and Henry Shefflin picking up a 10th winners medal.
The man of the match award went to Kieran Joyce.
81,753 spectators were present to see Cody’s men pick up the silverware once again and it was the Power siblings who did the damage in a devastating four-minute spell.
Richie Power struck the first goal in the 59th minute and younger brother John, one of three pre-match changes to the starting team, pounced from close range after Darren Gleeson pulled off a save to keep out a deflected Michael Fennelly effort.
Tipperary battled valiantly all the way to the end, and when Seamus Callanan scored his second goal of the evening in the 69th minute, a grandstand finish looked certain.
Second-half goals from brothers Richie and John Power inspired Kilkenny to a 2-17 to 2-14 All-Ireland SHC final replay victory over Tipperary at Croke Park.
But Colin Fennelly crowned Kilkenny’s win with the final score of the game as the clock ran out on Tipp, who missed their chance three weeks ago.
Friday next is the First Friday of October. The sick and housebound will be visited at the normal times. Please inform the parish office or one of the priests if you have a relative or neighbour who would like this service.
