ALL IRELAND MINOR HURLING SEMI-FINAL

Hard luck to our minor hurlers and team management on their narrow defeat by Kilkenny in the All Ireland Minor Hurling semi-final played in Croke Park last Sunday. Despite a great and spirited second half comeback, Tipp could not quite get their noses ahead at the end of an enthralling game which they looked destined to lose easily half way through the first half. Well done to all the players, management and others who helped out for all their efforts during the year.

Good luck to our minor hurlers and team management for their All Ireland Minor Hurling semi-final against Kilkenny which will be played in Croke Park on Sunday August 9th at 12 noon. The game will be followed by the All Ireland Football Quarter Final between Mayo and Meath at 2pm and the All Ireland Hurling Semi Final between Kilkenny and Waterford at 4pm. Tipperary and Kilkenny have met in the minor hurling championship on 21 occasions with Tipperary winning 11 times and Kilkenny 10. Tipperary’s last win was in the 2007 semi-final on a scoreline of 1-19 to 2-12. Tipp subsequently went on to win the All Ireland defeating Cork in the final to put back to back titles together. Kilkenny’s last win was in last year’s semi-final when they had a comfortable 3-17 to 1-14 victory before going on to defeat Galway to win the All Ireland title. The other minor semi-final between Galway and Waterford will take place in Croke Park at 1.30pm on Sunday August 16th. For those of you interested in trivia, the last time Tipperary played a minor hurling championship game in Croke Park prior to a Mayo versus Meath football game was on September 29th 1996 when Tipp defeated Galway in the All Ireland minor hurling final replay prior to Meath’s defeat of Mayo in the All Ireland football final replay.
