Percisely and the text in bold is excellently put, I am sure the KK posters here would say the exact same thing. Incidentally its exaclty how I would call the Munster Final as a Tipp man as well.

I would imagine the Munster final might be a bit of a false war. As a Dub it gives me no pleasure to recognise that - assuming we beat Laois or Westmeath - that it be regarded as the easiest of the quarter finals for Tipp/Limerick in Thurles.

Leinster final should have a bit more bite, given that winning be huge prize for Wexford, and a semi final spot to avoid the trickier side of the draw.

McDonagh itself is hard to call, and still of opinion that their having to turn out a week later serves little purpose.

Dunno, a full house in Limerick, both teams fielding strongest possible line-ups, imperative for Limerick not to lose a third match of the summer. From a Tipperary perspective, i'd much rather avoid a q/f if at all possible. Have much respect for this Dublin team.

Odd request here...is anyone travelling from Donegal down to the game? Or to limerick in general? Have sudden car trouble, I'm also in possession of mine and my cousins ticket which is a disaster as for once I got a hardcopy version in Centra

I would doubt it. There is a ticket office on North circular at Gills at top of Jones Road. You will get tickets there.

i imagine this is how both teams will look at it , too hard to call from a neutral point of view , a defeat for either side could set them back for the year

My first ever Leinster final today. Taking the Scottish father in law along. Looking forward to it. Hopefully Wexford out it up to the cats again. Presume they'll bring a big crowd.

Get ready to see massive wave of Purple and Gold the most passionate hurling supporters in Ireland descend upon Croke Park!

45k coming from Loch Gorman, up the yellowbellies!

No such thing as a 'false war' Munster final. I can u understand your logic in thinking the loser is still in with a great shot and they are but they ll both bust a gut for this win. It's the second most important title in Hurling.

I fancy Tipperary to win very well today. They were much more impressive beating us than Limerick were, we downed tools v Limerick away from home but Tipp beat us playing into a gale in Ennis where we’ve only lost twice in 18 games previous.
They have better more natural hurlers than limerick and assuming they match limerick intensity wise then this will be the deciding factor. Hope our minors can learn from the last game in the GG and win an overdue Munster title too.

Excellent. Should make for a good atmosphere. Nothing worse than two thirds empty Croke Park.

Usually a frequenter of the Munster final so excited to see a Leinster final.
