Tipperary’s senior hurlers are facing into a summer of club action as their Munster and All Ireland campaigns came to a disappointing end today.
They had to give best to a late Clare resurgence in Semple Stadium – Tipp had been on top throughout the game only to see the Banner score a goal in the 65th minute.
Tipp went into the game on the back of two draws and a defeat and knew that nothing but a win would give them any chance of progressing.
It ended Clare 1-23 Tipperary 1-21
With so much on the line today Michael Ryan said his players gave absolutely everything while he was also full of praise for Clare.
