Munster Senior Hurling Final
Hard luck to our senior hurlers who lost out to Limerick in last Sundays Munster Senior Hurling Final which was played in Mediterranean like conditions down by the banks of the Lee. After an energy sapping first half, Tipperary went in at half time leading by 10 points and looking to be in a good position. But as they have done on a number of occasions in the past, Limerick came out fighting in the second half and really took over in the third quarter as they out scored Tipperary by 1-10 to 0-01 and from there on took control of the game. To their credit the Tipperary players never gave up and they kept plugging away but could not regain their first half momentum. In the end it was Limerick who retained the Munster as vthey won their third title in a row. Tipperary now look forward to a All Ireland Quarter Final on the weekend of July 31st against either Cork, Galway or Waterford.
Munster Under 20 Hurling Semi Final
Tipperary played Cork in Semple Stadium last evening , July 20th in the Munster semi final and after getting off to a great start that saw them heading to the dressing room ahead by 1-13 to 0-10 and looked to be in a good position. However Cork emerged a different team in the second half and from the throw in they came at Tipperary with everything they had as they took control of the game outscoring Tipperary by 2-05 to 0-01 in the first 15 minutes and from there they remained ahead, winning in the end by 3-20 to 2-17. Hard luck and thank to all the Tipperary players and management for the work they have put in over the last few months. Well done and best wishes to Cork who will now take on Limerick in this years Munster final.
