Tipperary senior Camogie coach Michael Cleary has told his charges to believe in themselves as they bid for a historic three All-Ireland titles in a row on Sunday against Kilkenny in Croke Parke.

The Tipperary girls won their first ever title in 1999 and successfully defended their crown last year. Now as they bid to make it three-in-a-row Cleary is telling them to do the simple things and to do them well.

"I want to get them to believe in themselves. That has been the gospel of Tipperary hurling for generations - do the simple things but do them well."

"I just tell them what has been said to me by Babs Keating, Theo English, Donie Nealon, John O'Donahue and Len Gaynor when I was playing for Tipp - they had been told the same thing by Paddy Leahy and his likes.

"If the message was good enough to deliver 25 All-Ireland Senior Hurling titles, it is good enough for me to pass on," said the former All-Star who added that Tipperary have to produce a high-octane performance to beat the Cats in the decider.
