What is it that makes Kilkenny hurling so special?
Kilkenny fans are often slated for not being the best supporters of the game, but if the truth were told they are some of the greatest supporters.
For anyone that has ever visited Kilkenny City, they quickly become aware of the passion people have for hurling and for the greats that have become masters of the game.
It has shaped local society and is always at the heart of community and clubs around the county. Fortunately the first weekend in September has become a near annual trip to Croke Park for the last decade for Kilkenny fans and that has created some of the greatest traditions in the community.
So Michael Lyng Motors are asking Kilkenny fans to share those magic moments that make Kilkenny supporters some of the greatest.
From hanging your bunting, visiting Nolan Park for team trainings, heading to Flannery’s and Coppers the Saturday night, the fry in the morning, the drive to Dublin, the family outing to Croker, meeting friends in the Big Tree, entering the stadium, the tea and sandwiches at half time and last but not least the trip to City West to meet the team.
Tell it as it is!
Win lose or draw Kilkenny supporters always turn up to greet the players in all weather conditions with the greatest cheer after finals.
Email Lyng Motors your pictures, selfies and videos to firstname.lastname@example.org, #mlmfans on twitter and tag them in your pictures on Facebook.

Figures just released from SIMI (Society of the Irish Motor Industry) show that this year, new car registrations have generated an extra €171 million in revenue compared to the same period last year.
Car sales in August (4,873) were up 32% on the same month last year. To date, 89,279 new cars have been sold, an increase of 30% on 2013. The increase in registrations in July and August alone generated an additional €68 million for the Exchequer, which brings the total for the year from new car sales to €720 million.
“Next year, new car sales have the potential to generate a further €100 million for the economy, on top of this year’s growth and create 1,500 more jobs,” suggested Alan Nolan, SIMI Director General.
