There’s an excitement building about the Tipperary hurlers as they prepare to embark on their new campaign according to 2010 All Ireland winning coach Eamon O’Shea.

Friday’s game is the opener for the 2019 season with Limerick taking on Kerry on Thursday the 20th in Austin Stack Park the only other pre Christmas fixture in the Munster league.
The new look Tipp panel have been training well across the last number of weeks in preparation for the year ahead. Liam Sheedy also assembled a new look backroom team for 2019, with coaches Tommy Dunne from Toomevara and Kildangan’s Darragh Egan to the forefront.
