Munster MFC Final:Tipperary 2-14; Kerry 1-14
Many congratulations to Tipperary minor footballers. They may be minor in name but not in achievement. It takes a mighty effort to beat Kerry three times in a row in the minor championship—twice in the same competition. Despite the great efforts of a gallant few, Tipperary have been serfs to royal masters for longer than I can remember except for the occasional uprising - Kilarney and Thurles in 1955 and Kilarney again in 1984. The foundations have been laid and I hope on this occasion that success will blossom at senior level. Best of luck in our remaining games—which may involve another meeting with Kerry—especially to my neighbours David Power and Bill Maher.
