Irish Gaelic Games: All Ireland Hurling Final 2013

A big day in Irish sport took place on Sunday the 8th of September when the All Ireland Hurling Final 2013 took place. County Cork took on County Clare in a thrilling game full of shocks and excitement – which ended in a tie. In hurling, if the game ends in a tie a re-match is called. The two teams will have to meet once again in two weeks  time and battle it out for the coveted title. 

The game was played in front of 82,000 passionate supporters and finished Clare zero goals and twenty fifty points to Cork’s three goals and sixteen points. Most of you are probably aware, but for those of you who are unfamiliar with the game – each goal is worth three points hence both teams finishing on twenty five points.

The replay is set for Saturday, September 28th, almost certainly at 5pm, which will make it the first All-Ireland final to be played under lights. Ticket prices for the replay are slightly cheaper and: €50 for stand tickets and €25 for terrace tickets.
