LIAM 07 – The 2007 Hurling Championship (Double DVD)
This double DVD brings together all the highlights of the season and captures all the excitement and the drama of the Hurling Championship 2007.
The top teams in the country had one team in their sights. Kilkenny’s victory in the 2006 All-Ireland final put a stop to Cork’s three-in-a-row and established them as favourites to retain The Liam McCarthy Cup. But the 2007 championship began with a welcome surprise. Waterford’s talented team won the League – their first national title in 44 years – and with great skill shut out champions Kilkenny in the final. That victory kick-started the most exhilarating hurling championship in years.
The race for the Munster title started explosively with the season’s big controversy, an eruption of tension and confrontation before the opening Cork-Clare match had even started. Who could have foreseen the epic three-match series between great rivals Limerick and Tipperary? On the other side of the draw Waterford had to win Munster to seriously mark their All-Ireland challenge but first they would have to get past Cork who in the past have contributed to the most talked about rivalry in hurling. See bonus DVD.
Throughout its history The Liam McCarthy Cup has gone overwhelmingly to three counties: Cork, Tipperary and Kilkenny. But each year the championship opens with a sense of anticipation, the feeling that out of something the unexpected will happen. 2007 is no different.
