Championship hurling is back with a bang, writes Steve Neville.
Cork defeated All-Ireland champions Tipperary in an enthralling game of hurling by 2-27 to 1-26
A breathless first half had the sides level at the break and the 30,000 strong crowd on the edge of their seat.

Level on 16 occassions, with a late Michael Cahalane goal to seal it for the Rebels, social media couldn't believe the feast of hurling that was were served up.

Further proof that you should never feel sorry for Cork for too long. #TippvCork— Tommy Martin (@TommyMartinVM) May 21, 2017
Unbelievable advertisement for the game. Imagine someone watching hurling for the first time and seeing this #TippvCork— Daragh Small (@daraghs0) May 21, 2017

Pride restored in Cork hurling
So 30 points is no longer good enough to win a Munster first round... What a game... #TippvCork— Ronan O'Brien (@RonanOBrien09) May 21, 2017
It's a game that will live long in the memory, especially on Leeside.
