The Munster Senior title was first won in 2001 with a victory over Cork side Blackrock (2-14 to 0-12). The club enjoys an intense rivalry with city club Mount Sion and for many years through the 1990s and 2000s, the two clubs dominated the county scene in Waterford meeting each other in the county final most years. Since 1992, Ballygunner have won many county titles. Ballygunner GAA (nicknamed "The Gunners") is a Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) club located in the parish of St Mary's Ballygunner in Waterford City, Ireland.

After 2001, it was realised that to cope with the huge influx of young juveniles, and to provide adequate facilities, a great deal of time and money would have to be invested. Then president of the GAA, Sean Kelly, officially opened the new facilities. On this site, plans were put down for a new top-quality floodlit all-weather pitch, a hurling and handball ally, a floodlit AstroTurf and a state-of-the-art indoor hurling arena with new clubhouse facilities. Phase 1 of the project involved extending of the clubhouse which would include two new dressing rooms and a meeting/trophy room. Fencing was erected around the new field and a scoreboard was put in place for the day. Under chairman Pat O'Sullivan, a development plan was put into place. For the club's 50th anniversary in 2004, the hurling ally and all-weather pitch were finished. Next was the purchasing of 8 acres (32,000m2) adjoining the current site.

SportsNewsIreland caught with Na Piarsaigh star, Cathal King, ahead of the game with the midfielder keen to push on now that shackles of finally claiming a county title had been lifted At the start of the year and for the last few years all we have worried about was winning that first county final, now that the weight has been lifted off our shoulders we can look forward to this match.

Players such as Shane O'Sullivan & Wayne Hutchinson, were to cement their places on the senior squad. In the years that followed their Munster triumph, players such as Stephen Frampton & Mick Mahoney had retired from senior hurling & all that was left of the original under 21 team was Billy O'Sullivan. However a new batch of young players, fresh off a minor county title, came into the fray.

Revival[edit]

All hurlers who came out of the small national school travelled into Waterford city to play for either the Erin's Own club or now archrivals Mount Sion. Having enjoyed multiple success at under age level through the local national school, Mr Mc Ginn, as he was commonly called, set up the club to nurture the game in the small parish. McGinn believed that there was enough talent in the parish to compete with the powerhouses of Waterford hurling. Prior to 1954, there was no adult hurling team in the parish.

Flynn landed another point from a free to seal the Gunners victory. He pointed two frees, one of them from inside his own half, and then, with just two minutes left on the clock, he snapped up an Andy Moloney delivery and gave Blackrocks goalkeeper Trevor Barry no chance with a goal. The final played in Semple Stadium Thurles was a closely fought game until the final minutes. Having been off target from two scoreable chances, and with the deficit down to three points, Paul Flynn took control of the final in the last ten minutes. Ballygunner beat Blackrock of Cork 2-14 to 0-12. After 35 years of trying, Billy O'Sullivan finally lifted the holy grail of Munster Club Hurling on behalf of his much loved club.
