Semple Stadium has been confirmed as the venue for the Munster hurling final.

All roads will lead to Thurles on July 1st as Clare and Cork compete in a repeat of the 2017 final. In the new look Munster championship, Cork finished top of the table ahead of Clare on scoring difference with Limerick advancing to the All-Ireland series thanks to their third place ranking.

Tipperary and Limerick will meet in the minor decider prior to the 2pm clash between the Banner and the Rebels.

Tickets will be made available over the coming days and Clare supporters are being urged to get behind their county in two weeks. In last year’s Munster Final, Cork fans completely outnumbered their Clare counterparts.

Joint manager Donal Moloney is hopeful recent victories will inspire their supporters to come out in force in Thurles. “People feed off the crowd. Hopefully in Thurles in two weeks time it won’t be like last year where it was nine to one or whatever it was in terms of attendance, hopefully it will be fifty fifty”.
