Mallow GAA Complex to host Waterford Crystal Final this Saturday

Mallow GAA Complex will be the centre of attention for the second weekend in a row when it hosts the Waterford Crystal Cup Hurling Final between Limerick and Cork this Saturday at 7pm. The Mallow venue successfully staged the semi-final between Cork and Clare last weekend, and club volunteers will be to the fore again this Saturday night as the Carrigoon venue hosts the final. It should be a great occasion as the Rebels and Shannonsiders battle it out under floodlights for the first silverware of 2015. Cork will be looking to win the competition for the first time after coming up short in the 2007 and 2011 finals, while Limerick, who won the inaugural final in 2006, will be hoping to take the trophy back to Shannonside.

Limerick are managed by T.J. Ryan, while Leeside legend Jimmy Barry-Murphy is in charge of the Rebels. Cork have won three games to get to the final, beating U.L, C.I.T. and Davy Fitzgerald’s Clare along the way, and with Barry-Murphy fielding experimental sides in the games so far in the competition it will be interesting to see if he rolls out some of the heavy hitters for Saturday’s game at Carrigoon.

It will be a typical Limerick v Cork clash and hurling fans won’t want to miss it. Be sure to arrive early this Saturday, and please obey the stewards.
