EbeneInfo – GB – Tipperary ends 85 years of waiting to win the Munster crown


Tipperary marked the centenary of Bloody Sunday with an excellent performance on Sunday at Páirc Uí Chaoimh to see off Cork and win the Munster the first time since 1935

Only once in the entire match did David Power’s side follow, when Luke Connolly put Cork 0-05 to 0-04 in front in the 16th minute

Other than that, Tipp was at the top all along, with Conor Sweeney and Michael Quinlivan combining for 12 points between them while the addition of AFL star Colin O’Riordan for his first game for the county since 2015 has been a huge boost

Tipperary – dressed in Grangemockler white and green, as the county did on that fateful day in 1920 – had a great start as Sweeney put them in front from the first minute after claiming a mark, then he doubled the lead after good work from winger Robbie O’Dwyer

Kevin Fahey got Michael Quinlivan to go 0-03 to 0-00 in three minutes as Cork struggled to earn his own kickout, but the Rebels responded when Luke Connolly sent over two points , then Ian Maguire forced a turnover which led to Mark Collins winning a free one, which he himself converted

As Tipp went 0-04 to 0-03 after Sweeney got his third point, a free, a 45 and a free from Connolly had the hosts ahead for the first time in the 16th minute Just before the water-break Tipp was level as Sweeney landed a fine point at a tight angle and they were back in the lead on 19 thanks to a mark from Liam Casey

Corner striker Mark Collins needed to go further as Cork looked to get more foothold in the middle, but they still struggled to deliver a good ball to their over-ambitious inside forwards with their deliveries, although a pass from Mattie Taylor made it bring Colm O’Callaghan to the level

However, this would be the last time there would be a parity as Tipp responded with four straight runs Quinlivan sent two in a row, a frank followed by a brilliant effort from a tight angle, then Sweeney had clinched his fifth before center-back Kevin Fahey took advantage of a pass from Steven O’Brien after a Cork attack failed

John O’Rourke ended the Cork drought after a well-worked point in the 35th minute, but another good score from Quinlivan in stoppage time saw Tipp take the 0-11 advantage at 0-07

They made a five clears as Sweeney started the second half like he had the first, scoring a mark, and they almost had a clear eight when Stephen O’Brien had a punch. who came back from the crossbar and if Casey fled loose ball, Cork got free withdrawal

This was lacking back then as he was still in shock, but even in his moment of triumph he returns to take credit from the people who set the platform up for him Huge maturity and humility, and you can see how he integrated this culture into his team https: // tco / OuZLeepSFD

The Rebels didn’t immediately make the most of the leak, but Mark Collins is free and a point from Brian Hurley left three, but the goal that was becoming more and more necessary didn’t seem to come to fruition In the 52nd minute, just before the second half break, they pulled off a good shot together as Ruairí Deane, Brian Hurley and Mark Collins bonded well, but the latter was ousted by Tipp’s defenders, with a free defense accumulating

Tipp continued after that thanks to O’Brien and Sweeney’s seventh point, but Cork stayed with them thanks to two free kicks from Collins and one point from sub Seán White, played by Brian Hurley – there was half a chance of a goal but he chose to send the ball

The deficit was reduced to two but, when Tipp won a frank on the resulting kickout, Cork’s dissent saw the ball advanced to 45, allowing goalkeeper Evan Comerford to point for a 0-15-0 lead. -12

When Cork goalkeeper Micheál Martin then sent his reboot straight to Quinlivan, Tipp had a cushion again

Over time, Cathail O’Mahony from Cork sent a long-range free but, after a Comerford 45 pulled out, Tipp’s replacement Philip Austin got what looked like to an insurance score In the 73rd minute, John O’Rourke of Cork got his second of the game, but Tipp made sure no scoring opportunity was conceded and they were keen to score this historic weekend in the best way
