A GENERATION OF RIVALRY

At the beginning of 1986, Tipperary led Clare 26-3 (Clare 'won' two other games on objections after losing on the pitch in 1889 and 1937), with two games drawn since the start of Munster championship in 1887.

The rivalry has been much closer over the last 25 years, standing at 8-6 to Tipperary with two draws. However, Tipp have won six of their last seven clashes.
