This article is about a province of Ireland. For the TV show, see The Munsters.

Munster is the most southerly of the four provinces of Ireland. It consists of six counties. These are Cork, Kerry, Waterford, Tipperary, Clare and Limerick.


There are officially three cities in Munster: Cork, Limerick, and Waterford.


There are three sports that are played widely in Munster: Gaelic football, hurling and rugby union. Soccer is also played but not at representative level. Munster as an entity is best known for rugby, with hurling and Gaelic football being more popular at County level. Munster rugby has had very notable successes over the past 30 years: they beat the All Blacks in 1978 and won the Heineken Cup in 2006 and 2008.
