Next up for Tommy Dunne’s minor hurling team is a meeting with Waterford on Sunday, June 3rd at Páirc na nGael in Limerick (throw-in 2pm) - the Déise lost to Clare (2-14 to 3-21) in their opening game on Sunday last while the Premier County emphatically saw off the challenge of Cork (4-15 to 1-14) to get their provincial campaign back on track following an opening round defeat suffered at the hands of Limerick (2-12 to 1-17).

The Premier County will complete the round robin stage of the Electric Ireland Munster Minor Hurling Championship on Sunday, June 10th when Tipperary host Clare at Semple Stadium, Thurles (throw-in 12 noon). But in order to stay in the hunt for a provincial final place Tipperary desperately require a win this Sunday and would appreciate your support at the Gaelic Grounds.

And, Tommy Dunne has named the minor hurling team to face Cork:

1. Aaron Browne (Knockavilla-Donaskeigh Kickhams)
