Tipperary Terrorise Dublin In All-Ireland SHC Qualifier

Despite the humid conditions at Semple Stadium here in Thurles, All-Ireland defending champions Tipperary took no prisoners this evening, trouncing a fragmented Dublin side in the All-Ireland SHC round 2 qualifiers, to rub shoulders with the final four.

Seamus Callanan collected a personal tally of 3-11 (20pts) as Tipperary battered Dublin by a massive 6-26 (44pts) to 1-19 (22pts), punishing their earlier reluctant, yet expectant guests, by a massive 22 points.

Tipperary were far too professional for the visiting players from ‘The Pale’, and despite the former looking defensively poor in the first half, the Premier’s S. Callanan, J. McGrath and John O’Dwyer terrorised their opponents, proving once more that future pretenders to the All Ireland throne, can expect stiff opposition in their efforts to regain the Liam MacCarthy crown.

Tipperary Team: 
D. Gleeson; D Maher; T. Hamill; J. Barry; J. O’Dwyer; R. Maher; P. Maher; B. Maher; M. Breen; J Forde; P. Maher; D. McCormack; J. O’Dwyer; S. Callanan and J McGrath.

Subs:
S. Kennedy for R. Maher; N. McGrath for B. Maher; S. O’Brien for D. McCormack; M. Cahill for D. Maher and T. Fox for Pádraic Maher.
