PLAY IT AGAIN PAUL; Flynn gets in to seal draw for the Decies.
Just when Waterford's first Munster hurling final in nine years looked to have ended in brave failure, Flynn rattled the Banner net to send the Decies support in the 51,000-strong crowd into raptures and give Gerald McCarthy's men another shot at toppling the champions.
And Flynn just missed the chance to cover himself in even more glory when a free from impossibly long range in the dying seconds sailed just wide of the Bannner upright to deny Waterford a famous victory.
Clare manager Ger Loughnane was relieved to be still in the hunt afterwards and heaped praise on their opponents.
"Their hurling today was way ahead of anything that Cork, Limerick or Tipp have produced this year. I knew they were good, but I never really imagined they could be this good.
"I have mixed feelings right now. I'd have loved to win, but equally I'm glad to be still in there fighting."
