Tipperary’s Under 20 Footballers are relishing the prospect of taking on Cork in the Munster final.

Paddy Christie’s side overcame a poor start against Cork in last night’s semi-final to book their place in next week’s provincial decider.

Tipp won out on a scoreline of 11 points to 9 at Semple Stadium while the Rebels saw off defending champions Kerry in a thriller at Páirc Uí Chaoimh, on a scoreline of 3-12 to 3-11.

Tipp captain Sean O’Connor says they’re already looking forward to the final next Thursday night.

“Just being in a Munster final is an unbelievable feeling.”

“Cork or Kerry it didn’t matter which one we were going to get – both are savage teams.”

“So we’ll knuckle down in training for the next week. Try and get the bodies right and have a serious crack at them.”
