Allianz Hurling & Football Leagues
Last Sunday saw the conclusion of both the Hurling and Football leagues for our Tipperary teams. Our hurlers were in Walsh Park in Waterford where they took on the hosts in a game that would have seen Tipperary top Division 1 A had they been successful, however on the day it was not to be as Waterford emerged victorious on a full time score of 2-29 to 3-21.
Our footballers made the trip to the midlands where they played Longford in Glennon Brothers Pearse Park in a relegation play off game. Again there was no luck as Longford put in a very strong second half performance that saw them emerge victorious meaning that Tipperary will now play in Division 4 of the football league in 2022.
The focus now turns to the forthcoming Munster championship for both sets of players and their management teams. First into action on July 4th will be our senior hurlers when they will play either Clare or Waterford in a semi final clash. The game will be played in either Pairc Uí Chaoimh or the Gaelic Grounds depending on the opposition. The Tipperary senior footballers are also drawn in a Munster semi final where they will play the winners of the Quarter Final clash between Clare and Kerry on July 10th this game will take place in either Semple Stadium or Cusack Park Ennis at 7pm. All of our county teams have a full schedule of training and challenge games over the coming weeks in preparation for their respective Munster championship games.
