In one of the most anticipated Hurling Finals for years, the experts and pundits, to the pub bar-stool viewers and suppporters - cannot agree on which team is better - or who should be favourites?
Best Irish Pubs
All across Continental Europe there will be 100,000s of Irish in the best Irish Pubs this weekend - to watch the greatest game on earth - the fastest field sport - Hurling - played byt he 2 greatest teams - not just in ireland but in the world.
In a game of skill, and majesty, from plucking the sliotar out of the sky with whipping hurleys all about, to scoring while on the run from the wing, hurling is a great sport and spectacle.
Tipperary come into this match on the back of a great championship and recent great form - as reigning All-ireland champions having dethroned Kilkenny in 2010 and stopping a historic 5-in-a-row All-Irelands. But Kilkenny are not gone - they are back and playing as well as ever - having shown a few blips in the league when the team was at half-strength - like Kerry in Football - "Only the Championship matters"! Kilkenny are playing as well and as physically tough as any year. Dublin to their credit in 2011 have improved immensely and gave Kilkenny a close match in the Semi-Final.
At present 2 teams stand head and shoulders above the rest - these are Tipperary and Kilkenny - which one will stand head and shoulders above the other - all will be revealed on Sunday - as we will see who lifts the Liam mcCarthy Cup of 2011.
All across Continental Europe you can find the best Irish Pubs showing live coverage this Sunday - from 3 or 4 pm.
