Sir - Re Eoghan Harris's column (Sunday Independent, 2 August): I admire the love of county as much as the next man or woman. Kilkenny, for example, need not go outside the county boundary to find the greatest hurlers we have ever seen (DJ Carey, Richie Power, Eddie Brennan - did I miss someone out here?).
But remember the wonderful final of 2013 when Clare fairly and squarely defeated Cork over two matches with the brilliance of their young players. Who can deny that Clare's victory was happy for Ireland if sad for Cork?
Similarly, how often have Waterford been confined to the Munster Championship because of the brilliance of Cork and/or Tipperary? May we not rejoice to see the true blue of Waterford in Croke Park after so many years of disappointment?
