CORK’s Colm Lyons has been appointed as the referee for Sunday’s Munster senior hurling final between Clare and Limerick.

Lyons is a familiar man in the middle for meetings of the two counties, he was on duty in Cusack Park when Limerick produced a twelve point turnaround to defeat Clare 3-15 1-18 in the opening round of the Munster championship.

Indeed Colm has done the last three round robin ties involving Clare and Limerick in the Munster SHC including Clare’s 1-24 2-20 victory against the Treaty County in the Gaelic Grounds last April and their 2022 draw in Cusack Park when Gearoid Hegarty was dismissed on a straight red card.

It will be the second time the Nemo Rangers clubman officiates the Munster SHC final having officiated the 2020 decider where Limerick ran out 0-25 0-21 winners against Waterford who were then managed by Liam Cahill.

Elsewhere, Thomas Walsh of Waterford has been appointed as the referee for the Leinster SHC final between Kilkenny and Dublin which takes place at 6pm on Saturday in Croke Park. The Modeligo man has handled Kilkenny’s draw with Galway in the Leinster round-robin this year plus Cork’s 4-30 1-21 trouncing of Tipperary while he was in charge of the 2023 Joe McDonagh Cup final between Carlow and Offaly.

Antrim’s Colm McDonald will referee this year’s Joe McDonagh Cup final in Croke Park on Saturday which pits Laois against Offaly.
