Tipp and KK are both hungry this year so it should be a cracking championship

Early days for both, but Kilkenny have injected some serious pace in their forwards, Cork backs were awful though.

A dryer sod may still cause Tipp problems and Clare messed up by allowing Paudie Maher to be the free man and really needed to go toe to toe with Tipp. Giving Tipp that sort of platform to rain ball down in on Seamus Callanan and Jake Morris was never going to end well and when Kelly saw red Tipp were always going to drive on.

By the looks of the Limerick lads they've beefed up a bit and not in a good way, buy maybe someone ordered too small a set of jerseys for them on Sunday.
The AIF session must have gone on til Xmas.

I thought they hurled rightly on Sunday and maybe they'll push on a bit, those sorts of games in the past Limerick lost, so the confidence of winning last year has stood by them, was impressed with Kilkenny and Galway are missing a few players from two teams still left in the club competitions
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Bit of a surprise with the Dubs beating Tipp who are not as lethal as in seasons past

Hard to know as Sheedy is open about the fact that he felt Tipp weren't as well physically conditioned as some other teams and he's probably set about correcting that.
If they were put through a few tough training sessions in the week then it's no wonder they were flat.

it's all about May now.

they made a huge improvement between April and the AIF in 2017 so maybe it's nothing

A few of the backs have been 'lorry it up the field' merchants in recent years and Callinan is often not  great lad to bring other forwards into the game
Sheedy seems to have curtailed that

"At noon on the morning of All-Ireland Senior Hurling Finals in which Tipperary participate, a ceremony of remembrance is held at the spot in Talbot Street where he died,[9] attended mainly by people from West Tipperary and Dublin people of Tipperary extraction. The last such ceremony was held at midday on Sunday, 4 September 2016 and attracted a large attendance, most of whom were en route to Croke Park."

Did it happen on Sunday ?

Yes. I was at it. A very nice 30 minutes or so. Big Crowd. Derek Warfield played music, then a lad recited the Proclamation. Then a descendant of Sean Treacy let a decade of the rosary for him. After that a lad sang "Tipperary so far away". Then Aogán Ó Fearghail said a few words and a piper played Amhrán na bhFiann. Derek Warfield played a few more tunes and wrapped it up. All off to Croker then.
