It has been three years since Waterford have been in an All-Ireland hurling final and over 60 years since they last won the Liam McCarthy cup.

To say it has been a long wait is an understatement and a win on Sunday against fierce rivals Limerick would mean an awful lot for the Déise faithful.

We have not had a new song out for an All-Ireland final in a while, let alone a hip-hop song.

Yung Skakur is one of a number of artists who have put Waterford on the map in recent years, with Pat Lagoon being another up and coming talent from the Crystal county.

With the final on Sunday, Yung Skakur has released a brand-new single in the lead up called 'Swing' which pays homage to his home county and some hurling legends of past and present.

The chorus refers to Waterford hurling legend John Mullane who famously said in a post game interview: “I love me county.”

Former Waterford defender Ken McGrath also gets a mention as well as current Waterford defender Austin Gleeson.

Some local spots like Siopa Rís appear in the song as well as a famous local food staple called a blaa.

Limerick and Waterford will square off this Sunday at 2pm in the All-Hurling Championship final at Croke Park. Waterford fans can get in the mood for Sunday's final by checking out the song and video below.
