POLL | Who will finish in the Top 3 of the Munster Senior Hurling Championship

Ahead of the 2023 Munster kick off this weekend, we want you to pick the three side that will make it out of the province and advance to the All-Ireland series.

Four teams will begin their Munster Senior Hurling Championship campaign this weekend with five-in-a-row chasing Limerick facing Waterford in Thurles while Clare host Tipperary.

Cork begin their campaign the following weekend with each of the five teams harboring genuine title aspirations. John Kiely’s side have proved immovable since 2019, winning eleven of their last twelve games with the final round draw to Clare the only time they have failed to pick up the win in almost four years.

Still, Waterford will fancy their chances this Sunday against the newly crowned league champions with Kiely highlighting the competitive nature of the championship.

“If you were to look back in the last three or four (Munster Championships) you’d have to say that this is possibly the most competitive one and there’s a lot of teams that can hurt you very badly, very quickly if they’re given the opportunity. so you know that’s not lost us. Every year is different and I’ve always pointed this out, no two seasons of the same, they all bring their own story, their own narrative.”

Since the inception of the round-robin in 2018, there have been three editions where the five sides have all faced each other. Limerick, Cork and Clare were the first trio to emerge five years ago with the same sides advancing last time out. Tipperary joined Limerick and Cork in 2019 prior to the covid enforced knockout championships of ’20 and ’21 with Waterford the only side yet to make it out of the round robin format although they did reach both the provincial and All-Ireland finals in 2020.

But ahead of the 2023 Munster kick off this weekend, we want you to pick the three side that will make it out of the province and advance to the All-Ireland series.
