Useful Information
  • This is the last Munster Senior Hurling Final in Páirc Uí Chaoimh before it is rebuilt – the first was on August 1st 1976 also between Cork and Limerick. Cork won by 3-15 to 4-5. 
  • The 4 games in the 2013 Munster Senior Hurling Championship produced an average of 37.5 scores per game. However the average was higher in the previous 2 years with 40.5 scores per game in 2012 and 43 scores per game in the 2011 Munster SHC. It was 34 scores per match in the 2010 Munster SHC. The highest scoring game in 2013 yielded 39 scores, the Munster final victory for Limerick over Cork by 0-24 to 0-15. The average after 4 games in the 2014 championship is 42.25 scores per game. 
  • The last 8 Cork v Waterford games in the Munster Senior Hurling Championship have produced 29 goals.
  • It’s 8 years since Cork won the Munster championship – the longest gap since the 10 year period between their 1956 and 66 wins. 
  • Until last year, Limerick had won only 1 of their previous 17 Munster Senior Hurling Championship matches, a victory over Tipperary in the 2007 Munster Semi-Final 2nd replay at Pairc na nGael. During that period, Limerick drew 5 times. Until this year’s victory over Tipperary at Semple Stadium, Limerick’s last Championship victory away from Pairc na nGael came in 2001 with victories over Cork and Waterford at Pairc Ui Chaoimh. 
  • Three of the 4 games in the 2013 Munster SH Championship were played in Páirc na nGael Limerick. In the previous 4 years only 2 Munster SHC games in total were played there.
  • With Limerick’s victory last year, Clare are the only one of the 5 participating counties not to have one the Munster SH Championship since the turn of the millennium. 
  • Declan Hannon of Limerick was the top scorer in last year’s Munster championship with 0-17 from 2 games. Patrick Horgan of Cork was second in the list with 0-12 from 2 games. Patrick Horgan has already scored 2-33 from 3 games in this year’s championship and is the current top scorer with a lead of a whopping 2-17 over nearest challenger Pauric Mahony (Waterford). Although Horgan amassed this in three games compared to 1 or 2 for other counties, it’s still an awesome tally with an average score of 0-13 per game. 
  • Waterford scored 0-14 against Cork in their quarter final replay – it was the lowest score by a team in the Munster SHC since 2010 when Tipperary recorded 0-14 in also losing a quarter-final to Cork. Tipperary of course went on to win the All Ireland final later that year. 
  • Clare and Cork met three times in last year’s hurling championship, with Cork winning the Munster semi-final, a draw in the All Ireland final and a Clare win in the All Ireland final replay. 
  • Clare played 8 championship games to win last year’s All Ireland title. Kilkenny played 6 to win the 2012 title and 4 to win the 2011 title. 
  • Brian Gavin (Offaly) will referee his third Munster senior hurling final on Sunday – he previously took charge of the 2010 replay and the 2011 final.
