Snippets

 

Both Clare and Tipperary included 10 players from their NHL clash in March in their starting line-ups for the Munster semi-finals victories over Limerick and Cork respectively.

The Munster Senior Hurling semi-final attendances for 2008 were in the region of 42,000 (Tipperary vs. Cork) and 28,000 (Limerick vs. Clare) – this compares favourably with the last Munster semi-final between Tipperary and Clare just 3 years ago when 22,527 paid in to see the Tipperary win by 2-14 to 0-14.

The last Munster Final to be played in the Gaelic Grounds was 12 years ago when Limerick and Tipperary drew before the Limerick won the 1996 replay at Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

Conor O’Mahony is the only Tipperary player to start in every one of Tipperary’s nine matches in League and Championship in 2008. Paul Curran (8 starts, 1 substitute appearance), Seamus Butler (7 starts, 2 substitute appearances), Ryan O’Dwyer (7 starts, 2 substitute appearances) and Benny Dunne (6 starts, 3 substitute appearances) have played a part in every one of Tipperary’s League and Championship matches in 2008.

The average age of the Tipperary team which started against Cork in the 2008 semi-final was 25.6. This was the oldest Tipperary team to take the field since the 2006 Munster Final when the average age was 25.9 boosted by some players over the age of 28 at the time like Brendan Cummins, Paul Ormond, Eamon Corcoran, Paul Kelly, John Carroll and Ger O’Grady. Of the Tipperary team which started against Cork this year, only Brendan Cummins, Eamon Corcoran and Seamus Butler are aged 28 or older.

The youngest Tipperary team to line out since 1990 was for the 2001 All-Ireland Final against Galway when the average age was 24.2.

Goalkeeper Brendan Cummins will make his 50th Championship appearance for Tipperary if selected for the Munster Final having made his Championship debut against Waterford in the 1995 Munster Championship.
