Ireland’s Largest Crowd Since Pandemic Began To Descend On Dublin This Weekend
The All Ireland Hurling Final between Cork and Limerick will see a crowd of 40,000 in attendance, although thousands more are expected to visit the capital for the occasion.
Cork are looking for their first All Ireland title since 2005 and excitement is at fever pitch across the county as fans rally their support for the team
Speaking to RedFM News, Cork selector Diarmuid O’Sullivan says times have changed since he was playing for Cork but he’s confident the current team will be able to handle the pressure:
“We didn’t have all this social media, we didn’t have all this craic going on. So that’s a bit more difficult to the guys because there’s more intrusion on their lives that way. It’s easy to come here and do a bit of a media day but that’s probably the biggest change is the intrusion from social media and other bits and pieces, but I think our guys are well versed on that, and well able to handle it.”
