U-21 hurlers implode against Tipp

Galway U21 captain Fintan Burke was man of the match.

THERE was a major dose of reality for Galway hurling last Wednesday night in Limerick as the Galway suffered a comprehensive loss at the hands of Tipperary in the All-Ireland U-21 semi-final.

Going in to the game as hot favourites, the Tribesmen were beaten all ends up by their Munster counterparts who came out fighting following their 13-point defeat at the hands of Cork in the Munster final, and it is that same pairing who will now contest this year’s All-Ireland.

Late on, Galway did well to work themselves back in to the game following the ridiculous sending-off of Tipperary forward Mark Kehoe, but after Cian Salmon received his marching orders in additional-time for kicking out at Tipperary substitute Paddy Cadell, Ger Browne fired in a brilliant individual goal to assure victory.
