HISTORY BECKONS IN GLAMOUR FINAL

Will Kilkenny go where no other hurling or football team have gone

before by

winning a GAA Hurling All-Ireland Senior Championship title for the

fifth

successive year? Or will Tipperary ruin their dream?

The answer will emerge in Croke Park on Sunday when Kilkenny and

Tipperary line up in an eagerly-awaited hurling final (3.30pm). It will

be

preceded by the ESB GAA Hurling Minor All-Ireland Championship Final

between Clare and Kilkenny at 1.15pm. Michael Wadding (Waterford) will

referee the Senior final while Anthony Stapleton (Laois) will be in

charge of the

Minor final.

Kilkenny are bidding for their 22nd successive championship win and

haven't

lost a game since going down to Galway in the 2005 All-Ireland

semi-final.

Since then they have beaten the following: Wexford (4); Galway (4); Cork

(3);

Dublin (2); Offaly (2); Waterford (2); Tipperary (1), Westmeath (1);

Limerick (1),

Clare (1).

Last year, they became the first county since Cork in 1941-42-43-44 to

win the

four in a row and are now bidding for their 33rd title. Tipperary, who

lost to

Kilkenny by five points last year, are seeking their first All-Ireland

title since

2001 and their 26th in all.

Five-in-a-row....never previously achieved

Three counties, Wexford, Cork and Kerry have attempted to win the five

in a

row without success in hurling and football. Wexford footballers won the

football title in 1915-16-17-18 but lost the 1919 Leinster semi-final to

Dublin.

Cork hurlers were seeking a fifth successive title in 1945 but were

beaten by

Tipperary in the Munster semi-final. Kerry footballers have twice tried

to win the

five in a row. In 1933, they won the Munster title but lost the

All-Ireland semifinal

to Kerry. In 1982, they were again on the five-in-a-row trail but lost

the All-

Ireland final to Offaly for whom Seamus Darby scored a late

match-winning

goal.
