Best of luck to Kilkenny and Tipperary in today’s (SHC) All-Ireland in Croke Park.

‘The Hurler’s Prayer’
(Seamus Redmond)

Grant me o’Lord a hurler’s skill
With strength of arm and speed of limb
Unerring eye for the flying ball
And courage to match them whatever befall
May my stroke be steady and my aim be true
My actions manly and my misses few
No matter what way the game may go
May I rest in friendship with every foe
When the final whistle for me has blown
And I stand at last at God’s Judgement Throne
May the great Referee when he calls my name
Say …
You hurled like a man
You played the game…
