MUNSTER MINOR FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP
Match day two for the Tipperary minor footballers didn’t live up to expectations as an unexpected display saw Tipp lose out to Clare 1-10 to 0-6 in this phase 1 round 2 encounter in the Electric Ireland Munster Minor Football Championship.
This Wednesday evening April 24th in Sean Treacy Park, Tipperary will play their final round-robin match against Limerick where throw-in will be at 7pm. Following Limerick’s 0-10 to 1-7 draw with Waterford last week, Wednesday’s match is effectively a semi-final clash for the Darryl Darcy Cup. Tipperary will no doubt be eager to get their hands on the cup in memory of one of their own.
