Remember the Rock and Corcoran's magic points for Cork against Limerick?

These are the type of magic scores the Rebels will hope to register on Sunday in the Gaelic Grounds.

CORK BID FOR their first Munster senior hurling title since 2006 on Sunday afternoon when they face Limerick in the Gaelic Grounds.

They face unfamiliar opponents thought as the counties have only met five times since the start of 2001 in the senior hurling championship.

And you have to go all the way back to 1992 for the last time Cork and Limerick met in a Munster senior hurling final.

But there have been a couple of magic moments in clashes between the counties in recent years and here’s two magic points that Rebel fans will remember fondly being registered against Limerick.

The Rock

In 2001 there was Diarmuid O’Sullivan’s monster effort from distance in Páirc Uí Chaoimh.
