Tipperary set sights on long summer

Tipperary aim to put a disappointing league campaign behind them with a home opener against Limerick in Thurles.

The last time these two sides met in the Munster Championship back in 2007, Limerick ended on top in extra-time of the third game, winning by three points.

Since then, the Munster rivals faced off in the 2009 All-Ireland semi-final which saw the Premier County thrash the Shannonsiders 6-19 to 2-7 with a hat-trick from Lar Corbett who has recently re-entered the fray but is unavailable for the encounter.

Manager Declan Ryan says that the aim of the county is to once again reach All-Ireland success.
