Tipperary GAA Scene - 05-05-2021

This Saturday May 8th will see the commencement of the 2021 Allianz hurling league and what better way for Tipperary to begin the campaign than with an away trip to the current All Ireland champions Limerick.


There have been 63 previous League meetings between Tipperary and Limerick. The Premier county leads the way with 35 wins to the Shannonsider’s 21 victories and there were 7 draws. The last six games resulted as follows;

  • 17/2/2008 at Semple Stadium, Tipperary 2-20 Limerick 2-9
  • 19/4/2009 at Semple Stadium, Tipperary 1-17 Limerick 1-11
  • 21/3/2010 at LIT Gaelic Grounds, Tipperary 2-24 Limerick 0-8
  • 31/3/2018 at Semple Stadium, Tipperary 2-31 Limerick 1-31 (Semi-final, after extra time)
  • 2/2/2019 at LIT Gaelic Grounds, Limerick 1-21 Tipperary 1-14
  • 25/1/2020 at Semple Stadium, Limerick 2-14 Tipperary 0-18


After a prolonged period away from the playing fields, Tipperary will be anxious to get off to a good start and with this game being the players first competitive intercounty game in almost 6 months it will be great to see them all back wearing the blue and gold. They have all worked extremely hard both individually during lock down and as a panel since their return to collective training a number of weeks ago.


Unfortunately, supporters are still not permitted at games, but you don’t have to miss a minute of the action as the game will be broadcast live on Tipp Fm, RTE and Eir Sport. You can also keep up to date with all the action on the Tipperary GAA Twitter feed.


The team announcement for Saturday’s game will be made on Tipp FM on Friday night at 9pm. Best wishes to all the players and team management on Saturday and for the coming year and hopefully we will all have lots to cheer and smile about over the course of the summer.
