Is this the end of the greatest hurling side of our time? That’s the question many GAA fans are asking this Championship season as
The Cats have been licking their wounds since that shock Leinster Final defeat to Galway.
Kilkenny’s opponents this Sunday, Tipperary, didn’t display the goalscoring fireworks of recent years in their Munster Final win over Waterford.
When these sides met in 2010 Kilkenny were on the receiving end of a Lar Corbett hat-trick as the Premier County ran out 4-17 to 1-18 winners in one of the classics. So, either way, this weekend’s All-Ireland SHC semi-final between Tipperary and Kilkenny could mark the end of an era.
Kilkenny legend Eddie O’Connor said: “It’s a huge game for both counties and you’ll definitely see a number of players retiring from the team that loses on Sunday. So it’s possible that it’ll be the end of an era for some of the greatest players that ever played hurling.”
Kilkenny, who will again look to Henry Shefflin to provide the spark, are favourites at 4/6 with Tipperary at 6/4 to find their shooting form again and claim victory.
