Replying To Redhot:  "Cork scored 40 points in their game against Westmeath last sunday that must be either the highest or one of the highest number of points ever scored in a AI senior hurling championship game"
OK so it seems that 40 points is the most points scored by a team in a hurling championship game

Well done Cork

5 April 1903 - Antrim 0-41 - 0-12 Derry

The ball must have been light as a feather!

Replying To Condorman:  "Did Waterford hit 33 against Offaly a couple of years back? I can't recall any team ever hitting 40 before.Did Westmeath play without a half back line?"
Even worse, they had 2 sweepers in the first half and no pressure put on out the field, and a young lad 20 or 21 on his own in the full forward line on his first start of the year, you'd have to wonder what the management were thinking. We had at least a somewhat competitive game against Tipp a few years ago when we tried to play.

No the Christy Ring cup does not count . but on another note 9-39 must be the highest or one of the highest scores ever in a inter county hurling game

I have never heard of a county team scoring that amount
