It was comfortable in the end as Tipperary lifted the Liam McCarthy Cup for the first time since 2010. They ended years of heartbreak against Kilkenny with an excellent performance. They bettered the Cats in all areas of the field and were emphatic winners. Here is how Twitter reacted.
Magic…A lot of hurt and pain through the years but all worth it for today. What a TEAM performance. Hon d Premier. All Ireland Champs ????

Tipp full forward line would’ve beaten Kilkenny alone today, 2-21 to 2-20, some going ?

Hard to believe Tipp have won just three All-Irelands since 1991. This group needs to push on now. They’ve got the talent & the age-profile.
