All very depressing but on the basis that every cloud (even chilly ones) has a silver lining, hurling supporters from Tipperary and Dublin will be hoping it's a positive omen for their September prospects.

Yes folks, 1965 was the last year that Tipperary won two All-Ireland senior hurling titles in a row -- a target which will be on the agenda again next month when they face the Cats.

As for Dublin, 1965 was the last year they won the All-Ireland minor hurling title.

And now they're back in the final as 5/6 favourites against Galway (11/10) to end their 46-year wait.
