Pics: Fans at the Munster minor hurling final invade the pitch... before the game had even started

The GAA are trying their best to stop post-match pitch invasions at present, so Lord knows what they’ll have to say about the one that happened before the Munster minor hurling final this evening.

Limerick and Waterford battled it out for a second time in the Munster minor hurling final replay in Semple Stadium this evening, but the throw-in was delayed due to huge crowds making their way to the Thurles venue, with many of them having to cross the pitch before getting a seat in the crowd.

GAA fans will remember the sight of ‘Plan B’ on the big screen in Croke Park when an attempt to prevent a pitch invasion went awry a few years back so we don’t know what category this incident will fall into, but by all accounts the two sides delivered a cracking contest so at least those who did go along got their money’s worth.

Continuing what has been a mighty season for the Treaty County, the Limerick minors emerged victorious on a scoreline of 1-20 - 4-8.
