Tipperary is basking in the glow of an incredible 2019 season for them with the U20s picking up their own All Ireland title just a week after the seniors success and this week’s Throw-In, in association with Bord Gáis Energy, with Will Slattery and Michael Verney looks back on the weekend action.
And the future is bright for Tipperary hurling judging by the U20s devastation of Cork in the final with an amazing four goals in the opening ten minutes.
Jerome Cahill was one of a trio, including Jake Morris and Paddy Cadell, who claimed senior medals in Croke Park and they will be looking to make their mark on Liam Sheedy’s team in the next few years.
Meanwhile, for Cork, with no underage hurling titles since 2001, they need to start winning again to quell any doubts about themselves moving forwards.
Will and Michael also review the Ladies football semi-finals with 10,000 in attendance for the first Ladies semi-finals to be held in Croke Park between Dublin v Cork and Galway v Mayo with Dublin and Galway winning out.
Like the men’s team, Dublin Ladies are building their own footballing dynasty seeking a three-in-a-row while their opponents, Galway are in their first final since 2005.
