SP2S1Pic2 The centrepiece of the Port Lairge hurling year takes place this Sunday afternoon in Walsh Park  when neighbours Ballygunner and Passage go head to head to see who will be crowned 2013  County senior hurling champions.
This decider has the makings of a most interesting contest and will surely attract a large  gathering from the Ballygunner, Passage and Dunmore heartlands, as well as right across the  county as a whole.
Sunday’s finalists have most contrasting histories when it comes to this stage of the  Championship.
Passage have appeared in just three finals, losing all three, against Lismore (0-8 to 0-7 in 1993)  and going down 2-12 to 1-11 to Mount Sion a year later.
Their most recent appearance in a SHC decider came in 1997 when they lost to this Sunday’s  opponents – Ballygunner by 2-17 to 1-14.
