2007 All-Ireland Hurling Final: Kilkenny v Limerick
Kilkenny went into the 2007 final as red hot favourites and capturing another senior title would see them match Corks record of 30 wins. With convincing wins against Wexford, Galway and Wexford again the favourites tag seemed justified. But Limerick did not subscribe to that idea, had played in some of the best matches of the campaign and had caused an upset in defeating Waterford in a high scoring semi-final. Kilkenny had experience and history on their side, Limerick had the element of surprise plus the support of many neutrals. Would it be title number 30 for Kilkenny or Limerick’s first since 1973?
