THIS WONDERFUL hurling season continues to throw up moments of genius, and we again witnessed something special in Tom Semple’s field on Sunday.

Limerick and Clare produced a game of honesty, drama and pure war that had me entranced on my sofa from start to finish. I can only imagine what it was like to have attended a game with such intensity and atmosphere, and it would take a brave man to bet against a third instalment of this incredible rivalry before year’s end.
