The All-Ireland Hurling Championship has well and truly begun and looks set to be a thriller. With this in mind we test your knowledge and see can you name every hurler to score a goal in an All-Ireland final since 2000?
The first Sunday in September holds a special place in any hurling fan’s heart. Since 2000 we have seen some classic All-Ireland finals. Kilkenny fans in particular will have enjoyed this event.
Eight teams have managed to reach the All-Ireland final since 2000, but just four have climbed the steps of the Hogan Stand.
Their have been 20 All-Ireland finals since 2000, as there has been three replays. In this time we have been gifted with 68 goals.
Since the turn of the millennium, only one final finished goal-less as Cork stopped Kilkenny’s three in a row dreams.
Two players have managed to bag hat-tricks on this monumental occasion. Several other players have been fortunate enough to net goals on their All-Ireland final debuts.
One lucky Cat even managed to raise a green flag on his senior inter-county debut. Not surprisingly, it is a man from Kilkenny who has netted the most goals since 2000.
Put your knowledge to the test below. Only a true hurling genius will receive full marks here.
