It’s been one of the most controversial summers in the GAA’s history. We’ve seen a lot of high profile appeals and suspensions. 2017 has been highly entertaining; the entertainment has provided drama that has not always been positive. There have been a number of negative episodes and here we rank the top five so far. 5. Sliotar Thief Cork hurling’s revival …

Ranking The Top Five All-Ireland Hurling Semi-Finals Since 2000

Tipperary John O'Dwyer celebrates his goal 14/8/2016

It’s safe the say that ranking this down to a Top Five was a challenge. Thirty-seven All-Ireland semi-finals have taking place since the turn of the millennium, with fifteen of these truly falling under the ‘great game of hurling’ category. Croke Park has seen lots of drama unfold over the last eighteen seasons and here are our favourite five games …

Both Michael Ryan and Micheal Donoghue have made changes ahead of Sunday’s clash. There are two changes to the Tipperary side while Galway make just one alteration. After heavy criticism was directed towards Tipperary’s defence following their victory over Clare, it’s not surprising that both changes come in this sector of the field. Darren Gleeson returns to the side once …

Sport loves an unsung hero or a surprise package. In hurling terms Shane O’Donnell is the name that springs to many people’s minds. He wasn’t a complete unknown to all, having scored goals against Waterford, Wexford and Laois earlier that season, but his 3-3 haul in the 2013 All-Ireland hurling final replay is what he is remembered for. The fairytale …

Waterford The Big Outsiders In All-Ireland Hurling Championship Betting

Following two rather underwhelming quarter-finals at the Páirc Uí Chaoimh curtain-raiser last weekend, we now know the final four teams in the race for this year’s Liam MacCarthy Cup. Clare troubled Tipperary at times on Saturday afternoon, but were ultimately no match for the reigning All-Ireland champions – the Premier’s All-Star forward line were phenomenal. The following day, Derek McGrath’s …

Kilkenny hurling legend Jackie Tyrrell has identified Tipperary’s defence as their biggest weakness.  The 35-year-old won nine All-Irelands and claimed four All-Star awards during his inter-county career and is universally recognised as one of the toughest defenders of all time so it’s safe to say he knows a thing or two about defending. Writing in The Irish Times, Tyrrell claims that Tipperary’s …

Three Outside Bets For The 2017 Hurler Of The Year Award

We are on the eve of the All-Ireland Hurling Championship quarter-finals in what has been one of the most exhilarating hurling championships of the modern era. We have had the resurgence of Wexford, the demise of Kilkenny and you just never seem to know where the likes of Tipperary and Waterford are at – yet both counties are still in …

Does The Back-Door Route Suit This Tipperary Side?

After a shock defeat in their championship opener, Tipperary have regrouped and are still standing. With this in mind, we have to ask, does the back-door route suit this Tipperary side?  The obvious statistic here is that Tipperary’s two most recent All-Ireland titles have come via both routes. They overcame Kilkenny via the back-door in 2010 and took the direct …

Tipperary haven’t exactly set the championship alight so far this year like they did in 2016, but they are still in the hunt for September glory yet again.  The defending All-Ireland champions saw a drastic halt to the momentum they carried through to the beginning of 2017 from last year’s convincing Liam MacCarthy Cup triumph when they suffered a surprise …

During the week, Eoin Kelly predicted that Michael Ryan may drop some big names this weekend. The Tipp boss has done just that by making two changes, although it’s not the alteration many expected. Dangerous forward Noel McGrath has been left out of the side. The Premier have struggled massively for form recently. After trouncing Wexford in this year’s league …

Brave Westmeath Run All-Ireland Champions Tipperary Extremely Close

All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Qualifier Round 1, Semple Stadium, Thurles, Co. Tipperary 1/7/2017 Tipperary vs Westmeath Westmeath’s Shane Power is tackled by Tipperary’s Dan McCormack

So far, the 2017 hurling championship has seen it’s fair share of upsets. Westmeath were very close to blowing these upsets well and truly out of the water before the reigning All-Ireland champions eventually won by 2-18 to 0-15. When the draw was made last Monday morning, no tie seemed a more foregone conclusion than this. All-Ireland champions Tipperary were …
