Tipp Minors Show Craft and Skill

All-Ireland MHC Semi-Final:

Tipperary 2-16; Galway 1-14

Tipperary minor hurlers had a nice win over a highly rated Galway fifteen. They showed great skill in handling and striking. I liked the way they harried and blocked opponents when possession was lost. On the negative side, they seemed to take a doze at times; also over elaborate passing at other times. More concentration and 60 minutes of determination will see them over the line in the final. It would give me extra pleasure this year as the team is captained by fellow parishioner and fine young sportsman Bill Maher. Finally, if Galway had been playing anyone else yesterday I would have been backing them to the hilt because they always produce such skillful players when one considers that they have ploughed a lone furrow in the West since the G.A.A. was founded
