Tipperary’s senior hurlers are this week trying to get over the ‘devastation’ of losing to arch rivals Kilkenny in the historic first ever All-Irleand qualifier tie between the sides in the pulsating cauldron that was Nowlan Park, Kilkenny on Saturday evening last.

The three point defeat dumped Tipp out of the championship- the first time since 1998 that The Premier Counnty failed to win a game in the championship -and leaves a lot of soul searching with a number of players currently considering their futures. With a number on the wrong side of thirty, the feeling within Tipperary is that a break-up of the side could well be on cards in the coming months if Tipperary are to regain their position in the All-Ireland pecking order. Right now, we are arguably out of the top five having been champions just three season ago.
