All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Final

Páirc an Chrócaigh

At 3.30pm.

Cill Chainnigh v Luimneach

Referee: Colm Lyons (Corcaigh) (E.T. if Necessary)

The All-Ireland senior hurling championship was first staged in 1887. Limerick were the first-ever winners of the MacCarthy Cup when claiming the 1921 crown, and the defending champions are seeking their first ever senior three in a row. Kilkenny are seeking a first All-Ireland senior title since 2015. The last time they were without Liam MacCarthy for this long was between their victories of 1983 and 1992.

Patrons are also advised to be aware of the current weather forecast for the weekend, which is for extremely warm conditions. The teams will have an additional water carrier in operation on match day.

After the impact of Covid-19 in recent years, Sunday’s attendance will be the largest at an All-Ireland senior final since 2019 after a Covid capacity of 40,000 was in place last season.
