Limerick already heavy favourites for five in a row while Gillane remains HOTY front runner

Paddy Power has Limerick at 4/6 to win a sixth title in seven years in 2024 with Kilkenny the nearest challengers having lost back to back finals.

The dust may yet not have fully settled on the 2023 All-Ireland senior hurling championship but already the bookies have installed Limerick as the heavy favourites to retain their crown.

Should John Kiely’s men do so, then they will become the first ever team to claim a five-in-a-row as they matched the achievements of Kilkenny and Cork who won four on the trot.

Paddy Power has Limerick at 4/6 to win a sixth title in seven years in 2024 with Kilkenny the nearest challengers at 13/2. The Cats have lost successive finals to the Shannonsiders and are without a title since 2015.

Galway (17/2) are third in the list, level with Cork who didn’t make it out of Munster this term. Tipperary (11/1) are next, the same price as Clare who were beaten in back to back provincial finals by Limerick and All-Ireland semis against the Tribesmen.

There is a jump then to Waterford (28/1) and then again to Wexford (50/1)
