All Ireland Minor Hurling

Final Replay

Well done to William Maher (Manager) and Ger Fennelly (player) in the replay of the minor final on Sunday last v Dublin in Croke Park. It was especially a unique achievement for William because he had already captained a Tipperary minor hurling team to All-Ireland glory in 1996 also after a replay against Galway on that occasion. Keep up the good work. Best wishes also to Eamon O’Shea and his backroom team as he takes over as Tipperary Senior Manager where he will attempt to restore our beloved County to its rightful place at the top of the hurling ladder. We need men of their calibre to lead Tipp foreward.
