A place in this year’s All-Ireland hurling final against Galway is up for grabs as Cork take on Waterford in today’s semi-final at Croke Park.
Cork have enjoyed a strong Championship so far, seeing off Tipperary, Waterford and Clare on route to the Munster title.
And for the fourth straight game, manager Kieran Kingston has named an unchanged starting 15.
Meanwhile Waterford will be hoping to put their poor All-Ireland semi-final record behind them – they’ve won just one of their last 12 games at this stage.
Excitement was palpable in Waterford this morning as fans embarked on their journey to GAA headquarters.
For those not travelling by bus or train, the N25 via Wexford and the M9 are the main routes into Dublin today.
Waterford Gardai have advised motorists to drive safely, allow plenty of time for their journey , to leave early and to expect delays en route and returning this evening.
Some fans, such as the Griffith and Power families in Tramore (pictured) have organised their own bus to take them to Croke Park. Some members of the family have returned home from New York to watch today’s game.
