PicA Waterford’s minor hurlers travel to Croke Park this weekend knowing they are just  60 minutes away from a first All-Ireland final at this level since Waterford were  beaten by Galway in the 1992 decider. Back then just as was the case this year, the  Munster Final ended in a draw.  In 1992 just as was the case in 2013, the replay  took place on a ‘work’ evening. In 1992, Waterford had to beat Tipperary to  advance to the next phase of the competition as there was no luxury of a second  chance system for sides that were beaten.
A meeting with near neighbours Kilkenny this weekend will not be easy for the Deise.
