Harty Cup Final – FBD Semple Stadium.

FBD Semple Stadium today plays host to the first ever all Tipperary Harty Cup Final – Munster Schools Senior A Hurling Final between Thurles CBS and Cashel Community School.

Thurles CBS will be aiming to win their ninth Harty Cup final, whilst Cashel will aim to upset the odds and go for their first title.

Thurles CBS came through the Group Stages and following a narrow victory against St. Coleman’s College Fermoy; they again had a comfortable win against Midleton CBS in the semi final. Cashel successfully navigated the group stages and a 3 point victory against CBC Cork was followed by a sensational win against Ard Scoil Ris, Limerick, by the narrowest of margins in the Semi Final.

Apart from being the first all ‘Premier final’ in the competition’s 106 year history, today’s clash will see club mates square off, with Cashel King Cormac’s and Knockavilla Kickhams having representation on both panels. An interesting family battle is also expected, as Thurles CBS and Holycross Ballycahill star Robbie Ryan will, no doubt, aim to gain the upper hand over his uncle Brendan Ryan (Holycross Ballycahill GAA), who manages the Cashel CS team.

The presence of two Tipperary teams in the final is a testament to the dedication of the players, their mentors and Teachers and also their GAA clubs and mentors, from all over Mid and West Tipperary.

Throw in for todays historic fixture is at 1:00pm.
