Limerick have reached their third All-Ireland final in three years, seeing off Cork, Waterford, Tipperary, plus Clare in the Munster final and Galway in the All-Ireland semi-final.

It’s the Cats’ first time in an All-Ireland final since 2019 when they lost to Tipperary – handing Limerick their last defeat in the championship en-route. The last time they won Liam MacCarthy was 2015.

How will I get there?

All train services from Colbert station to Dublin are sold out, and Irish Rail says it will not be able to add any further services.

Customers are advised to book on JJ Kavanagh ( also provide a coach between Kilkenny and Dublin.
