It’s a familiar storyline in today’s Glen Dimplex All-Ireland senior camogie final. Kilkenny and Cork, rivals, sometimes bitter, for over half a century. In fact it has only been this duo and Galway at the final stage for the last decade, so the teams know each other inside out.

This encounter is expected to be tight and tough and with Ray Kelly refereeing, we are sure to see a real physical battle, hopefully in contrast to the stop-start nature of the football final last weekend.
