Not many in the well-attended final of the Tipperary Co-Op Super Valu senior hurling championship at Dundrum on Saturday evening expected the scoreline of 4-17 to 1-17 in favour of Eire Óg at the end of the game but there was no doubt about it and they thoroughly deserved their nine-point victory over Clonoulty-Rossmore.

The latter had gone into the game hot favourites to take their seventh divisional title in a row and they appeared to be confirming their favourites tag as they led by 0-9 to 0-5 after twenty-two minutes and were coasting along in control over most of the field.
