The ‘Gunners are aiming to claim their second ever Munster Club hurling title when they take on favourites Na Piarsaigh in this afternoon’s Munster Club Senior hurling Championship Final at Semple Stadium.
The Gunners secured a fourth successive Co. title this season and recorded hard earned wins over Thurles Sarsfields and Sixmilebridge in what’s already been a testing Provincial campaign.
Na Piarsaigh overcame Blackrock in comfortable fashion in the last four, and have yet to taste defeat in the Munster Championship.
Ballygunner manager Fergal Hartley says his side will be “up against it” when they face down a side he describes as the best in Ireland.
This afternoon’s game gets underway at 2 o’clock in Thurles and will be broadcast live on WLR with commentary team Kieran O’ Connor and Dan Shanahan, with thanks to George Corbett Skoda.
