Tipperary will play Cork in the Munster U-21 Hurling championship semi-final in Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Wednesday July 14th, at 7.30pm. The team will be captained by Padraic Maher (Thurles Sarsfields). While a lot can change in 3 years, Tipperary defeated Cork twice at minor level in 2007 In the Munster Final at Semple Stadium on July 8th, Tipperary won by 0-18 to 1-11 and in the All Ireland minor final on September 2nd, Tipperary won by 3-14 to 2-11. Tipp and Cork met in the Munster U-21 Quarter Final at Semple Stadium last year with Tipp emerging winners by 3 points, 2-22 to 0-25 after extra time. A trip to play Cork in Páirc Uí Chaoimh is always challenging and we wish the team management and players the very best of luck for what is likely to be a close contest.
