Sunday, the 7th of September, is the afternoon where the fate of where the Liam MacCarthy Cup will be decided. Where will Liam live for the next 12 months ? Will he be going to Kilkenny or to Tipperary ? Who will be accepting the trophy and will get to show off their great Irish spoken skills ?
Tipperary are now the bookies favourites, but only by a small margin. And we believe that the game itself will be a close one, maybe we’ll see another famous replay at Croke Park this year ? Tipperary outstripped Cork in their semi-final, never letting the Rebels get too close to the. While Kilkenny shrugged off a young Limerick team, in a fine display of the sport. If I was a betting man I’d probably keep the money in my pocket as it is just too close to call !
