Eoin Cody is hoping Kilkenny can return to the hurling summit in 2024.

The Cats haven't lifted the Liam MacCarthy Cup since 2015 and that's a long wait by their high standards.

"If there was only one player out on the pitch, the goal in Kilkenny will always be to win an All-Ireland," the Kilkenny captain and newly-crowned All-Star told RTÉ at the Goal Mile launch.

"If that’s not your goal as a Kilkenny man, there’s no point in going out playing. You hurl to win and in Kilkenny we hurl to win All-Irelands.

"It hasn’t happened since 2015, but the hunger and work ethic is as strong as ever. We fully believe in ourselves and we fully know we’re capable of doing it. There’s challenges along the way.

"In hurling, on any given day, there’s a winner and a loser but we’ll do all we can to be on the winning side and we’ll take it game by game again this year."
