Common Sense Prevails After Ludicrous Initial Decision On Cork Vs Tipperary Minor Replay


Cork and Tipperary played out a remarkable Munster Minor Hurling Championship semi-final clash in Semple Stadium on Thursday night, with extra-time unable to separate the great rivals.

With the losers eliminated for the year, and the winners presented with two chances of reaching an All-Ireland semi-final, the stakes were certainly high, and the two sides played admirably, with the game finishing on a scoreline of 2-18 to 1-21.

With the Munster final taking place on Sunday week, there was confusion as to the date for the replay.

Initially, it was decided that the game would take place early on Saturday afternoon, throwing in less than 39 hours after the drawn match finished. This was met by widespread disappointment.

However, as the fall-out continued, it was eventually decided that the replay would now take place on Monday evening, still giving the winners six days to prepare for the decider.

The game will be held in Páirc Uí Rinn, and judging by the entertainment and size of the crowd in Semple Stadium this evening, it promises to be a cracker.
