A sold-out crowd of 82,000 will arrive to Croke Park today for the All-Ireland Hurling Final.
Defending champion Limerick will once again take on Kilkenny to claim their fifth title in six years and their first ever four-in-a-row.
Throw in is at 3.30pm today in Dublin.
Limerick secured the first three-in-a-row victory last year in a 1-31 to 2-36 battle with the Cats.
After defeating Galway in the semi-final, Limerick will keep their starting 15 players unchanged, but with a reshuffle in their centre field.

Similarly, Kilkenny's starters are unchanged from their last match against Clare, with Eoin Cody captaining the county off the back of his man-of-the-match display in the semi-final against Clare.
Cody’s family recently told Newstalk they would be hitting the road early to get to the final.
“[Eoin’s mother Bridget] is good at throwing the holy water so I’ll leave that to her,” Mr Cody’s father Paddy said.
The Kilkenny team to face Limerick in the All-Ireland Hurling Final has been named.

Kilkenny player Cillian Buckley will play in the hurling off the back of his own wedding yesterday.
Mr Buckley assumed the final would take place in the last week of July, similar to last year, and married Niamh Dowling yesterday.
