Hurling fever has taken hold of Galway as the county prepares to tackle Limerick in this Sunday's decider at Croke Park, when Micheál Donoghue's senior men travel to Dublin, looking to secure back-to-back titles for the first time since 1988.

The hunt for elusive tickets for Sunday's mouthwatering All-Ireland senior decider has intensified in the last few days with fans clamouring to be at what many expect to be the most exciting hurling final in years.

This year's All Ireland hurling showpiece has been brought forward to this Sunday to accommodate Pope Francis' visit to Ireland, but in spite of the earlier date fans' appetites remain unabated for the ultimate event of the hurling calendar.
