From Tipperary GAA Scene
Losing to Cork in the Munster championship can never be described as a surprise but most people were shocked at the margin of victory Cork enjoyed in their 3-15 to 0-14 win over Tipperary in the Munster championship quarter final in Páirc Uí Chaoimh last Sunday. However, all is not lost and Tipperary now have the qualifier route to follow in the quest for All Ireland success. Support and encouragement for the team will be important for the team in the weeks ahead and we hope that the loyalty of Tipperary supporters will remain steadfast. Tipperary’s first game in the qualifiers will be on either Saturday June 26th or Sunday July 3rd. Tipperary are in a group with the four first round losers in Leinster – Antrim, Carlow, Wexford and the losers of next Sunday’s game between Laois and Dublin. There will be one preliminary round game between the first 2 drawn – this game will be played on Saturday June 26th. The winners of that game and the other three teams will go into the hat to be drawn for 2 games to be played on Saturday, July 3rd. The winners of those 2 games will go into the draw for the games on Saturday, July 17th. They will be joined by the winners of the two games played between the losing semi-finalists in Leinster and Munster on Saturday July 10th. Draws will determine all pairings with repeat pairings avoided where possible. This will be Tipperary’s first time in the qualifiers since 2007 when they won through for a place in the quarter finals but were defeated by Wexford.


Hard luck to the Tipperary Intermediate hurlers who were defeated by Cork in their Munster Championship quarter final in Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Sunday. Thanks to the players and team management for all their work in recent months preparing for this game.
