The highly anticipated Munster clash between Clare and Tipperary in the All-Ireland Senior Hurling quarter-final is just hours away, writes Ciara Phelan.
The game which is nearly sold out will see over 40,000 revellers head to the newly refurbished grounds for the first taste of inter-county hurling.
The Premier County have recovered from their surprising opening defeat, after victories over Dublin and Westmeath while the Banner County will be looking to lick their wounds after their Munster defeat to Cork at Semple Stadium.
It has been the talk of the week, fans are up bright and early and here is how some of them are preparing for an exciting day ahead.
Twas like the March of the Penquins at 8am at the Pairc with staff streaming in, lovely day so far, Cork is buzzing today #PaircUiChaoimh— Jane (@RebelsAbuAbuAbu) July 22, 2017
