BRIDGESTONE AWARD "Best in Ireland 2011, 2012 and 2013.
There’s no doubt that the weekend belongs to cousins Barry Heffernan and Jake Morris who captured Celtic Crosses for themselves as Tipperary defeated Kilkenny, 3-25 to 0-20, in the All-Ireland senior hurling final. Barry followed in the footsteps of his uncle John by starring in the full-back line and so impressive was his performance that he was nominated for the Sunday Game man of the match accolade.Indeed Barry was instrumental in John O’Dwyer’s goal as he played an impressive ball into space for Seamus Callanan to run onto. Jake was introduced as a 60th minute substitute and fired over an impressive point.
Best of luck to Conor McCarthy, Jake Morris and the Tipperary under-20 hurlers in their All-Ireland final clash with Cork next weekend.
Congratulations to clubs legends John Heffernan, Mick Burns and Conor O’Donovan who were honoured at the GPA lunch in Croke Park on Saturday.
