Cork v Limerick: Limerick aiming for historyA win this weekend for Limerick would make them the sixth county to win back to back All Ireland hurling titles. They are also going for their third title in four years. Cork on the other hand are out to stop their own famine, with their last title coming sixteen years ago. The sides have met twice previously this year, with Limerick winning both. The last being an eight point win for Limerick in the Munster Championship semi-final in July.
Cork v Limerick: Rebel waveCork go into the game as underdogs but will hope their recent success in underage hurling will give the senior team a boost. They’ve just won two U-20 All-Ireland titles in a month, winning the delayed 2020 title against Dublin in July and the 2021 final against Galway this week. They also won the minor title yesterday to keep the Rebel Treble on course. If the seniors pull off a shock win it’ll be the first time they’ve done a clean sweep since 1970.

Full time Cork 1-22 Limerick 3-32
Well, what a performance from Limerick. They win their third title in four years and it's fully deserved. Cork to their credit tried hard but ultimately weren't able to live with Limerick.
69 mins Cork 1-19 Limerick 3-29
Limerick are emptying the bench and now finishing in style. This time through Cian Lynch with a superb score.
63 mins Cork 1-18 Limerick 3-27
Limerick have scored nine points in the second half compared to Cork's seven which shows how hurling wise this half has been closer but Limerick are doing enough to continue their journey to another All Ireland title.
And it's two further yellow cards for Cian Lynch and Tim O'Mahony.
56 mins Cork 1-17 Limerick 3-26
An old fashioned schmozzle is resolved through a yellow card for William O'Donoghue but the ref is asking for further advice so we could see further cards….
