 13000 plus at hurling league semi finals in Kilkenny last weekend. Not a great crowd but in fairness it's a long trip from Galway and parts of Limerick to Kilkenny. Dublin don't have a big travelling support for hurling. Waterford hard core league support of a few thousand did make the short journey.

Ballygunner handed out a 3 23 to 1 4 hammering to neighbours Passage in county semi final today
They are going for 5 in a row v Abbeyside who are looking for their first Waterford title in 2 weeks. Hopefully it will be a more competitive game.

Are Mount Sion and De LaSalle off the radar in Waterford City hurling circles?

De La Salle were only beaten by a point by Abbeyside in Saturday but Mount Sion were hammered in the quarter finals for the 2nd year in a row and haven't won the county title since 2006.

The All Ireland semi final defeat to Limerick in 2007 was a sickener as was the fifth semi defeat since 1998. We had been flying all year winning the league and Munster championship and were favourites but it was the 3rd Sunday in a row that we were playing and a fired up Limerick tore into us and 2 late goals killed us off.
The 2008 final was hard to watch as a brilliant Kilkenny team produced their best ever final performance to win the most one sided final in years. I was living and working in Kilkenny to make it worse. I tried to erase that day from my memory.

I was reading in the Examiner this week that the Munster council said there were tickets for Killinan End terrace available up to Sunday morning and that inaccurate media reports said it was a sell out. So hope you went down to game and got tickets for it.

Game was sold out a couple of weeks ago but when watching on tv could see space towards front of Killinan End so looked like more could have fitted in. I see capacity must have reduced for health and safety reasons going by post above. I was at a couple of Munster finals between Waterford and Cork around 03 and 04 at that end and there wasn't much space to move there.

Liverpool have to go to Chelsea next Sunday so are making heavy weather of sealing top 4 by dropping points to West Brom and Stoke. It should be wrapped up by now. The all action way Liverpool play in Champions League seems to be hard to do twice a week.

He hasn't retired but has had a lot of injury problems. They didn't miss him today. It's back to a Kilkenny Tipperary final again.

Great game last night. Tipp seem to have a habit of letting teams back into games. Limerick never gave up and look to have a good, young team and are still missing the Na Piarsaigh players so will be good Munster championship this year.

Waterford relegated in the play off game v Cork today which survived the weather . It took 20  minutes for us to score today and that  slow start cost us. We got back to within 2 points of Cork at one stage in 2nd half but the sending off of Maurice Shanahan within a minute of coming on for a petulant slap of the hurley (not for the first time) probably ended our chances. Cork finished strongly to win the game. It's been a disappointing campaign and Derek McGrath is getting criticised for his attitude to league. We have no home games in round robin in Munster championship as Walsh Park is not suitable for championship crowds. We have 2 games in Limerick where Waterford have a poor record so the morale is low at the moment.

You don't  hear much about Scor these days. Is it still popular? I took part in question time as a teenager and we got to Munster final somewhere in Co Cork possibly Banteer. My memories of it are vague enough now but can remember the hall being packed as Eamonn said and big interest at the time.

Is there any rule against feigning injury at the moment? This needs to be stamped out before it gets worse and ends up like soccer where it's part and parcel of the game.
