MUNSTER SENIOR AND MINOR FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP

TIPPERARY GAA SCENE
BY COUNTY PRO GER RYAN
MUNSTER SENIOR FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP

Tipperary will welcome All Ireland Senior Football champions, Kerry, to Semple Stadium, Thurles on Sunday next, May 16th for the first game in this year’s Munster Senior Football Championship. Their quarter final game will commence at 4pm. The winners will play reigning Munster and Allianz GAA Football League champions Cork in the Munster semi-final while the defeated team will proceed to the qualifiers later in the summer. This will be Tipperary’s first championship game against Kerry since the 2006 Munster Senior Football semi-final which Kerry won by 0-17 to 1-5 at Fitzgerald Stadium, Killarney. Their last meeting at Semple Stadium was in the Munster Senior Football championship quarter final on May 29th which Kerry won by 2-22 to 0-13. While Kerry will be strong favourites for Sunday’s game, there are no certainties in sport and with as much home support as possible a surprise cannot be ruled out. We would ask as many Tipperary people as possible to come and support our footballers who have prepared so well and diligently for this game under the guidance of John Evans and his management team. We wish them the very best of luck for Sunday’s game.

MUNSTER JUNIOR FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP

Good luck to the Tipperary junior footballers who will play Kerry in the Munster Junior Football Quarter final at 2pm in Semple Stadium on Sunday next, May 16th.

MUNSTER MINOR FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP

Good luck to the Tipperary minor footballers for the Munster Championship semi-final against Cork in Thurles on Wednesday, May 12th at 7pm. It will almost be a year to Tipp’s victory by 0-13 to 0-10 over Cork in last year’s semi-final at Páirc Uí Chaoimh. Tipp will be hoping to reach their third Munster Final in a row while Cork will no doubt want to reverse last year’s defeat and advance to their first Munster final since 2007.
