Tipperary senior football Manager Peter Creedon could not hide his disappointment in the aftermath of Saturday’s Munster semi-final clash with Cork at Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

The Rebel native had watched his adoptive county rumble with the big boys and lead them by a point a minute into injury time. Yet, the final whistle posted a two point win for Cork as Tipp’s heroics counted for nothing.

“We are very proud of the lads but at the end of the day we probably should have won. After half time we had four or five wides and I think Cork’s bench made the difference. We were very close. It’s a game of regret really,” Peter told The Tipperary Star afterwards.
