Minor Football - Tipperary minor footballers were beaten last Saturday by Mayo in the All-Ireland quarter final. Tipperary, the reigning All-Ireland champions never played to their potential in this game. Kilruane MacDonaghs mentor Pat Murphy was a selector with the Tipperary side and it was a great achievement for Tipperary to win an All-Ireland and two Munster titles in the last two years.
