On this week's episode of The Throw-In, Will Slattery is joined by Limerick defender Fiona Hickey to discuss the All-Ireland camogie final between Cork and Kilkenny.

For the second year in-a-row, Cork defeated Kilkenny by a single point in the decider but this year's contest was marred by a controversial refreeing performance by Eamon Cassidy.

Hickey says that Cassidy's performance took away from the occasion and that the association needs to look at the rules of camogie now that players have become bigger, faster and stronger.

Kilkenny played a defensive style yesterday and although they came out on the wrong end of the result, Hickey says that Ann Downey set her side up the best way in order to beat Cork.

Hickey also reflects on the camogie championship as a whole, as well as naming her moment of the year and Player of the Year.
