Tipperary hurlers claim crystal with spirited win over Clare

As responses to setbacks go this was encouraging. Seven days after they were soundly beaten by Kilkenny in the National League, Tipperary bounced back to win the Waterford Crystal Senior Hurling Cup in Sunday’s final at Sixmilebridge, their first success in the pre-season competition in four years. The final score was Tipperary 1-21 Clare 2-12.
