Congrats to Limerick. Awesome display of power and class. Commiserations to Cork. They will be back. Limerick today broke the all time scoring record for an all ireland final.

Noone going to mention that disgraceful grounding/spear tackle of the cork player by Cian Lynch ? Or is it grand cause it's a mans game bla bla

Has the player of the year ever been more clear cut? Cian Lynch is out of this world. Not just today but for the last four years, he gets better every game. For such a complete team Lynch stands head and shoulders above them all. Every top hurler has been marked out of a game at one point or other but this lad can't be marked. Given the abuse he got in the past, he's an inspiration to everyone.
If lynch is miles ahead of everyone else, then Hannon is the best captain in hurling I've seen in my lifetime.

Congratulations to Limerick. I'm delighted for the county and its people. What can I say? I thought Cork would toughen the game a lot more. Commiserations Cork. They'll need everyone of those minor and U-21 teams going forward. But forward they will go, because they are Cork.

As for Limerick. Imagine if they put today's first-half and the second-half versus Tipperary together in one game! Now, that's a scary thought for every other hurling county.

Cork won't handle that scoreline too well. Some whipping and congrats to Limerick, again.
Don't mind a few of the Kerry lads when they credit JP McManus with the win.

Fair play to Limerick, on a par with Kilkenny 2008 performance & possibly even better. We can have no compliants. Enjoy the celebrations. Limerick have a team for the ages.
All the best to Limerick, on a sober day for us Rebels.

Replying To katser:  "Hard luck Cork, next year try letting the ball off quicker instead of taking too much out of it with the stick and learn how to mark your man tighter."
How was it hard luck when they were beaten by that much? No sense in that statement

Don't worry wayno, 10 years from now when players go down for minutes on end clutching their heads at the slightest hint of contact everything will be OK again.

Delighted for Limerick, an absolutly powerful performance. They were truly awesome in that first half in particular, it was like men against boys at times.

Enjoy it, much deserved, and as you rightly say it wont always be like this. But for now it was a privilage to watch Limerick.

It was a rather dubious looking tackle alright, it got a yellow should it have been a red?

The only poster that mentioned JP and money was yourself and you are a Dub. This thread is about hurling and Limerick were majestic.

It wasn't a spear tackle. A spear tackle is when you lift a player up and drive him head first towards the ground a la what happened Brian O Driscoll when playing for the Kions against the All Blacks. Cian Lynch was tackled around the neck from behind and he pulled the tackler over his shoulder. It was reckless but it was not what you said it was.
