Despite the occasional drizzle which fell lightly on the hallowed turf of Semple’s field yesterday evening (July 31st 2019); over 6 thousand men, women and children converged on Semple Stadium in Thurles, all seeking to get “up close and personal” with their heroes the Tipperary senior hurling team.

The Tipperary senior hurling panel had kindly invited their supporters to attend an open training session from 8.15pm last night; having beaten Wexford [1-28 (31pts) to 3-20 (29pts)] in a thrilling All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship semi-final last Sunday afternoon, (July 28th).

Tipperary will now face old rivals Kilkenny, on Sunday August 18th, in the All Ireland Hurling Final in Croke Park, Dublin.
