Munster Council to contact Tipperary reps next week should Kerry win McDonagh decider

The Tipperary senior hurlers will find out next week whether or not they will need to face Kerry in a Munster Championship play-off, it has been confirmed.

However, there is still uncertainty over the fixture regardless of the result of the McDonagh Cup final, with calls coming from all and sundry for Kerry to be promoted into the Munster series should they defeat Antrim, which would make it a six-team competition for 2023.
