Former minor star Lyndon Fairbrother goaled from a 25m free five minutes into injury time to give JK Brackens a sensational one-point win over Holycross-Ballycahill in the O'Riain Cup (Tipperary Senior B hurling final) at Semple Stadium, yesterday.
Given that much of the focus on last Sunday’s All-Ireland SHC final revolved around Richie Hogan’s sending off, arguably the most important moment of the match has almost gone underappreciated.
Cathal Barrett says former Kilkenny players are "clutching at straws" by highlighting an incident in yesterday’s All-Ireland final where he caught Richie Hogan in the face with his hurley.
Liam Sheedy was ebullient about his Tipperary team when talking on local radio this week. “We feel we pushed a bit of energy back in by taking a little bit of a break in the early part after the Laois match so preparations have gone extremely well and I honestly can’t wait to get out on this pitch next Sunday.”
