Fr. Tom Burke’s 2-15 Tipperary 4-10
Tipp took the Sheehan cup in an exciting final. It was a cruel defeat for cup holder’s, Fr. Tom’s. Having built a lead of eight points early in the second half, Tom’s looked likely to hold on to the cup. Tipp had other ideas, and as Tom’s began to tire, Tipp took full advantage and fired three goals home in the last 20 minutes. Brendan Kenny, who had moved from corner back, put Tipp ahead for the first time in the game in the final minute. The score proved to be the winning point.
