Such a loss for Tipp and for intercounty hurling in general that he's decided to hang it up. He was in flying form these last few years, it seems that last years final really frustrated him.
The 2010 final will live long in the memory of all hurling fans.
Anyway, I'm sure he knows whats best for himself and I wish him all the best.
