It was very much Tipp's day in Croke Park on Sunday as they landed minor and senior titles and also saw their 1991 Jubilee Team honoured. Kilkenny's never say die attitude was not enough on this occasion as a terrific Tipperary performance, particularly in the second half, saw them storm to victory. Kilkenny GAA congratulate them on their great win.
