Dublin v Cork: 13 great debates that will be settled in Croke Park tomorrow

Roy or Chippy, stout-wars, tea-wars and much more. This rivalry runs deep.

TOMORROW EVENING WITNESSES the resumption of an age-old rivalry in Ireland.

You see, we don’t really have that whole East Coast-West Coast beef. But that’s okay, because the Capital-People’s Republic tension has always been much more serious anyway.

There is no end to the bickering and the cliched ‘bragging rights’ doesn’t go halfway to describing the torture one city will inflict upon the other when victory is theirs.

So, come full-time tomorrow, we will finally have a definitive answer (for at least seven days) to this baker’s dozen of hot, hot topics.
