Replying To katser:  "Handy win for Tipp against a team who will never get that far again!"
Laois have won the All Ireland before so how could you say they never will again?

Replying To Viking66:  "Hurl8ng played continuously in at least 2 other counties I know of and maybe more. Wexford and Antrim for sure."
And Cork.

Replying To baire:  "One doesn't play a county but a team representing the county and this particular team is not the team that used to waltz through Leinster and blow every other team, bar Tipp, off the pitch by half time. That day is gone Cockney, you should relax and enjoy the win and not to be so disparaging of the Galway hurlers. Without club hurling lasting in Galway throughout history, you'd still be playing cricket in KK, as you were when Michael Cusack, another cricket man, learned the rules of hurling from two Galway hurling clubs in 1883!"
Nicky Rackard was a good cricketer too. His father was cricket mad apparently it was a popular sport in rural Ireland back when the pace of life let a group of men spend a whole day or 3 playing a game!!!!

Replying To baire:  "Not quite as handy as the 1989 All Ireland!"
That was very handy alright..... but isn't it great to get such a easy free pass into the All Ireland Semi Final without even breaking a sweat. It's great to get handy opponents like Laois!

Your ignorance of the history of hurling in general, and in Kilkenny specifically, is laughable.

Replying To BliainanÁir:  "When Kilkenny won their first hurling all ireland in 1904 captain Jer Doheny said 'In Cork and Tipperary they laugh at our love of cricket... but in Kilkenny we love our cricket, and we love our hurling too!'.

Anthony Daly stole most of that iconic speech 91 years later."
Kilkenny also played in 7 Leinster Football Finals between !900 and 1911 (including 1904). In the same period they won 5 All-Ireland hurling finals.

Kilkenny where very good today in what was an old style hurling match. Limerick still look like getting two in a row though given the brand of hurling they playing.

Replying To StoreysTash:  "Very enjoyable match today I thought. I thought KK were dead and buried when Cork got their first goal but credit to KK, they showed the usual never say die attitude.
Their backs are a bit porous in my view but they've nothing to lose v Limerick where they are going to be totally written off."
Why would they would be totally written off. They have easily beaten a Cork team that wrecked Limerick twice already this year KK will be raging favourites next Saturday week.

Replying To katser:  "I'm absolutely devastated for Cork today, I expected so much more from this wonderful hurling County who I've always admired...Devastated! But Wow KK well done they were brilliant and for my favourite hurler Big Walter "Wally" Walsh delighted to see him come on and score massive important outstanding points!!"
Will you ever get real. This county you so admire has won just game out of nine in Croke Park this decade and to add to that sad joke if Ryan O'Dwyer was not put off that day thy would probably have lost that one too. How so many pundits backed Cork yesterday I cannot make sense of.

A brand of hurling never won a hurling match much less an all Ireland.
It takes a combination of factors the most important being the collective performance on the day.
Agree that Limerick are strong and worthy favourites but it's not even close to a foregone conclusion

Limerick are the league, munster and all ireland champions. I think its safe to say that Limerick will be most people's favourites.
If Limerick bring that intensity like they did against Clare and Tipp then i can't see anyone beating them.

Hard to bring that intensity more than twice or 3 times a season. Limerick might not play as well again this season after that performance in the Munster Final.
It could be a tit for tat All Ireland semi. I think Kilkenny have a great chance especially with the few players back that were injured. Walter could have a big game in him
But saying that Limerick wont be as weak around the centre as Cork were and they have a stronger all round team . It should be a fascinating match. Kilkenny feel abit sore with the free that never was in last years quarter and Limerick are a little peeved at Jackie Tyrell writing off their chances earlier in the season. The better team will win as Cody says.

KK will be well able for them... Richie Hogan is like a young lad buzzing around the field and big Wally will cause some damage...could we have KK v Wex for the 3rd time or will it be a classic KK v Tipp Final clash of the Titans!!

Limerick will be hot favourites and rightly so with the form they are taking into the match. If they get complacent they will be in for a shock though as although this KK team are not as gifted as teams in the past, they are an extremely difficult team to beat. KK's biggest danger will be Limerick racking up a big score if they get the run on them early like Cork did. I can see KK completely flooding their defense with bodies. Hogan and Walsh were excellent up front for KK yesterday. They could be ready to hit peak form come Saturday week. Goes to show they are not completely dependent on Reid when they have a full selection to choose from. I think I read 12 KK players contributed with scores yesterday to Corks 5.

Will there be a few mini buses going up from Offaly to support the Cats? Daithi Regan is the only Offaly man I know that doesn't have a Kilkenny jersey in the Wardrobe.
