Well pointed out, my thoughts exactly.

That's neither here nor there - and way too arbitrary. Either a club is fielding teams and promoting the game, or they are not.
If they are not, sorry but there are plenty of people who are promoting the game and trying to raise the standard who are much more deserving of tickets than the 1-2 "hurling men" in a club.
Or how would you define "hurling people" when it comes to something as scarce as AI final tickets?

Exactly, when Galway get to the all Ireland finals in hurling, football clubs get about the same number of tickets as the hurling clubs which is very annoying. We in the hurling part of the county could not get tickets. Any time Galway hurlers were in the final I nearly always got my tickets from friends in football areas or in different counties. If Galway got to the football final It would be easy to get a ticket from our hurling club even though football is not played because the interest in going would be a lot lower.

The way my limrik cousins are talking....is a matter of how much limrik will beat Cork as they reckon there is no chance of Cork winning!!
Stats........Cork 44 wins v limrik 15 wins!
I'm going for Cork to win, they have better squad players, huge fitness levels, better discipline and self control, also they have limriks number......Cork is the one Munster team limrik feel uncomfortable playing against!
Expect lots of nervous edgey mistakes from limrik with atleast one if not two Red Cards for limrik.

Welcome back katser for your bitter remarks leading upto another limerick game..if you yak to the majority of people in limerick,no one expects it to be easy,so I don't know who your talking to..cork could have gone 7 points up in munster c/ship only for penalty save by Nicky..that match could have changed the whole course of the year for both teams..I said before cork played Clare I wanted cork beaten because I do fear them..however my fear doesn't rub off on players so no worries there..also there won't be any red cards for limerick at weekend!!!!!!!cmon the boys in green..

The writers are at it again, talking about rivalries. Every game is a rivalry. It is another final being played by the two best teams who mad it there. It would be the same if it was Westmeath and Antrim. I am sure the pundits will be following up with similar dribble. It must be the challenge of writing something meaningful or nothing to write about.

Why do those stats even matter those are in the past ? Can't see anything other that a Limerick victory. Just hope the ref let's the game flow and if he does I can only see Limerick winning! He sometimes has a tendency to favour certain teams from time to time! Thought he did help cork in the early stages in the semi final. Can't see cork being able to live with limericks power!

Listen carefully Katser.

While I have no issue with you or anyone expressing their opinions, I feel that if you are posting about a team that according to you encapsulates all that is wrong with hurling, the very least you can do is get your spellings right. Limrick?

Have this week's Wally of the Week award for your sins!!!

If you were lucky enough to part of this Limerick team the last thing you would experience is fear. The last thing you would need to worry about is fear. The only thing you should fear is when you look around you, will you be picked. Everyone has an opinion and rightly so. While Cork are on the up surge mine is that Limerick will win this one pulling up.

Watching the U20 final on TG4...a very poor exhibition of hurling,Cork very physical and their shooting is embarrassing.Galway look like a team that are used to winning ball a lot easier and are not able for the physicality,they are throwing chances away now.So far not a good advertisement for the game of hurling.
Hope the second half is a lot better.

Galway were not at the pitch of the game at all in the first half. They are much improved in the third quarter but it looks like they may have left themselves too much work to do after that dreadful opening 30 minutes.

Better second half on the wides issue for Cork...only 2 wides.Galway did very well first 15 min second half and came back to within 3 points of Cork.Galway were unable to sustain the pressure and the size and speed of the Cork lads was too much for Galway.

Fine win for Cork in the U-20. Galway looked like minors in comparison, but am sure they'll come again in this age group. The red tide is rising, and as a man who wants to see Limerick win it, I have an ill-foreboding.

Jackie Tyrell, Tony Kelly and a couple of more pundits are suddenly tipping Cork. It'll go right down to the last puck of the ball.

Replying To BaldyBadger:  "Why do you care if anybody else wants you to win? Part of being the big dog at the top of the pile is that some neutrals that would support you on the way up, will start to look for other teams to beat you. Cork are the under dogs and quite often people will support an under dog. Of course many won't, but that's sport. None of thoseCork players have a winners medal, whilst most of that Limerick team are going for a 3rd. Throwing out comments that Cork will dominate based on no reason v a team that is actually dominating now makes no sense. In fact, in most forums, many other counties delighted in naming the all ireland contenders and making Cork out to be 6th or 7th in the list of likely winners. Either way, it doesn't bother me. I Just find it strange that you are so desperate to garner favour from all and sundry. Just enjoy the moment and good luck on Sunday. Don't worry about neutrals, as everybody will have their reasons to shout for either team."
The comments are based on reason. Congratulations on this two in a row win. By Sunday evening Cork could have won three All Ireland titles. At underage they are flying and Cork always capitalise on success at under age level.

Replying To Trump2020:  "Well done Cork. Well deserved win."
Thanks Trump. The whirlwind start really took the first half away from Galway. They were brilliant the first 10 minutes of the second but Cork got that 3rd goal to settle them, and I think it deflated the Galway lads after they'd fought so hard and just got back in touch.
You have another chance on Saturday. Good luck.
