GAA FOOTBALL ALL IRELAND SENIOR CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFIERS

From Tipperary GAA Scene
Good luck to the Tipperary Senior Footballers who will play Dublin in the second round of the GAA Football All Ireland Senior Championship qualifiers in Croke Park next Saturday evening at 6pm. Dublin will have a massive following and it is very important that as many Tipperary followers as possible attend. We would appeal in particular to Tipperary people based in Dublin to come along and support the blue and gold on Saturday evening. The game is part of an attractive double header which includes the Dublin v Clare GAA Hurling All Ireland Senior Championship Phase 2 qualifier at 4pm. It will be a historic occasion with this being the first meeting of Tipperary and Dublin in the senior football championship since 1922 when Tipperary defeated Dublin by 1-6 to 1-2 at Croke Park in the All Ireland final of 1920, which was the last time Tipp won an All Ireland senior football championship. The players and management have worked very hard this year to build on the progress they have been making and would greatly appreciate as much support as possible on Saturday evening. So, if you can at all, do come along and support them and while the Dubs will be odds on favourites, a surprise result cannot be ruled out.
