The GAA hurling All-Ireland title is back in Tipperary for the 28th time, following a 3-25 to 0-20 win over Kilkenny in the final. Kilkenny also lost the minor final, going down to Galway by 3-14 to 0-12. 

It was a glorious occasion for Tipperary as they celebrated a famous success just seven weeks after losing the Munster final to Limerick by 12 points. 

Team captain, Seamus Callanan, who had scored a goal per game in Tipperary’s previous seven championship outings, maintained his remarkable run to take his total to 8-18 (8-17 from play) for the entire campaign. Niall O’Meara and John O’Dwyer scored the other two goals for Tipperary, who led by a point at half- time. Kilkenny drew level on the re-start, but Tipperary were dominant from there on, outscoring their rivals who had Richie Hogan sent off just before half-time, by 2-16 to 0-8. 

Kilkenny captain, TJ Reid was the championship’s top scorer on 5-83 (0-64 frees, 2-0 pens, 0-6 ‘65s’, 0-1 side- line. 

Cork’s Patrick Horgan was second on 7-62 (0-46 frees, 1-0 pen), with Tipperary’s Jason Forde in third place on 2-65 (0-40 frees, 1-0 pen, 0-3 sidelines, 0-3 ‘65s’).
