Division 1 B they may be, but the Treaty County produced a mighty gutsy performance against the aristocrats of Munster hurling to turn the bookies form on it’s head as they infused the provincial championship with a sense of freshness and a new impetus which it so badly needs. Tipperary’s chances of making it three in a row in the province ended with a whimper and the Munster Final will now feature two new sides with both Tipp and Waterford out.
