The list of Waterford’s results at Minor level is complete, although not without having to choke back a few tears as I went past the match reports for the 1992 Munster final – it was then, not the run through the Senior Championship in 1998, that Waterford hurling awoke from its decades-long slumber.

The overall record throws up some oddities. It’s nowhere near as bad as our performances at Under-21 level which probably reflects that the Minor competition existed long before Waterford hurling really went off the rails in the 1970’s – five of our eleven wins at Minor level against Tipperary came before 1950. That good record against Tipp is offset by a mediocre one against Limerick, whom we didn’t beat at fourteen attempts between 1957 and 2009, and a terrible one against Galway, almost the complete opposite of our 100% record against them at Senior level. But we do have a 100% record against Kilkenny. Hopefully we’ll get to test that before too long.
