Kilkenny take on Tipperary in the All-Ireland Hurling final at 3:30pm today in Croke Park.
The two have met in 17 finals with Tipp edging out their neighbours with a 10-7 advantage.
In latter years however, Kilkenny have been the most dominant Hurling team in the country. The county is steeped in Hurling glory. Man, woman and child has the sliothar and hurl bred into them from birth.
Today, Brian Cody and Henry Shefflin aim to reach their 10th All-Ireland medal.
