Tipperary GAA Round-Up: Toomevara streak to twelve-point Séamus Ó Riain Cup final win

Toomevara’s twelve-point win over Roscrea in the replayed final of the Tipperary Water County Senior Hurling Championship Séamus Ó Riain Cup was the highlight of the weekend action on the Premier County GAA scene.

The Greyhounds returned to the big time on the club hurling scene with a bang at Moneygall on Sunday afternoon - Toomevara notched a double-score victory (2-18 to 0-12) over a disappointing Roscrea side.
