'Cats clash the only topic on Tipp lips' - Lar

There's no other talking point this week in Tipperary.
Legendary Tipp hurler Lar Corbett (35) says this Sunday's All-Ireland final against Kilkenny is the only topic on the tongues of his fellow county men.
And while the recently retired player has backed the boys in blue and gold to triumph over the treble-seeking Cats, he declined to offer a view on the final score line.
"The atmosphere in Tipp is all hurling at the minute. It's huge, because it's the one thing that every supporter, the players themselves and anyone that is a neutral - this is the game they want.
"They want Croke Park. They want Tipp and they want Kilkenny," he said.
"Everyone is trying to predict what they think is going to happen and that's what you meet on the streets of Thurles or on the streets of Carrick-on-Suir, or Nenagh."
"This is the one thing people are talking about for the week," he added.
