Premier see off Cats to claim Liam MacCarthy

first_imgMichael Ryan’s team put in a hugely impressive performance to beat title holders Kilkenny 2-29 to 2-20 in today’s final at Croke Park.Goals were always likely to be key to deciding the outcome of the match and Tipp got two of them – one a piece from John ‘Bubbles’ O’Dwyer and John McGrath.Their path to victory was also helped considerably by the scoring contribution of Seamus Callanan, who finished as the match’s top scorer with 0-13. For most of the game the Premier County were in the ascendancy and their prospects of a first All-Ireland title since 2010 were only seriously in peril when Richie Hogan goaled for the Cats.However, Tipp responded well to the setback with a flurry of scores that took them to victory.last_img
