Sunday 2nd. September 1973
A long wait of 33 years came to an end on a very wet Sunday afternoon in Croke Park when Limerick won the 7th. Senior Hurling All Ireland Title defeating Kilkenny in the Final by 1.21 to 1.14 in front a crowd of 58,009
The rain did not dampen the great scenes of jubiliation as Limerick celebrated at the final whistle.
