Limerick are seeking to emulate the Cats who are one of only two counties to win four on the bounce alongside Cork.
It will be a repeat of last year’s final in the 2023 All-Ireland Senior hurling decider as Limerick and Kilkenny came through their respective semi-finals over the weekend.
The defending champions were the first to book their place with John Kiely’s men putting in their best performance to date this year with a comprehensive 2-24 to 1-18 win over Galway on Saturday evening.
The following afternoon, Kilkenny ensured a rematch as they held off a valiant Clare challenge in a 1-27 to 1-24 victory in Croker.
Eoin Murphy was the hero on the day, producing an incredible save for the Cats to deny Clare in the dying embers of the game.
Limerick and Kilkenny will meet on July 23rd in Croke Park with throw in at 3.30pm. Tickets are to be distributed through the clubs in the coming weeks.
Last year, Limerick were two-point winners in a first final meeting of the sides in fifteen years. That completed a first ever three-in-a-row for the Shannonsiders. They are now seeking to emulate the Cats who are one of only two counties to win four on the bounce alongside Cork.
Limerick will also be competing in a fifth final in six years, their 21st overall. Kilkenny are the most winning county of all time with 36 titles, appearing in 64 finals overall. Their last triumph came in 2015 under Brian Cody with Derek Lyng leading the side to the final in his first year in charge this summer.
Limerick play Kilkenny in the 2023 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship final on July 23rd at 3.30pm in Croke Park.
