Once again, Waterford have the honour of defending the Munster Cup and, in what will surely be viewed as karma for the ‘disgrace‘ of allying ourselves with Cork and Kerry in rigging, er, seeding of the football draw, we’ve got the booby prize of playing in the first / qualifier / preliminary round, thus giving one more game for us to be knocked senseless in. And it’ll be against Clare. Beautiful. Should we win, we’ll play Limerick in the semi-final. You could argue that that will have extra spice this time round after events of 2007, but every Munster championship game has enough spice to go around.
In the football, it’s a repeat of last year; Clare in the first round with three-in-a-row chasing Kerry waiting in the semi-final.
