Kilkenny and Tipperary had their first contest in the All-ireland semi-final in 1887 and ever since they have become each others biggest rivals.
Now as i am a Kilkenny woman in a Tipperary school arriving into school on Monday after this weekend can go one of two ways, either Cody and the boys pull through and win and enable me to come in proud as punch and as happy as Larry supporting some sort of black and amber, or... Tipp could win and i might just not come into school at all that day!(the slagging i would get would be immense and being honest i don't know if i could handle it).
But hopefully with the help of God the boys in black and amber will get the job done and save me the awkwardness of having to walk through those doors on Monday. Either way i will be proud but please, please, please, please PLEASE God Kilkenny will win.
UP THE CATS!!!
