Sublime comeback, as they say Carlsberg dont do comebacks but if they did they probably best ones ever. Unbelievable game, Limerick incredible.

He missed 2 red card tackles by Limerick players today.

That being said Tipp embarrassed themselves in the second half

Shamus Flanagan.

What a second hand performance by Limerick.

Kyle Hayes goal was brilliant. Goal of the year wrapped up.

Why would Seamus Kennedy tackle Padraig Maher? Do they not get on? Are they that bitter in Tipperary that they tackle each other? Nonsense

LRH. In '62, '75, '81, '96 '07, and today Limerick were ten or more points down against Tipp and in every occasion except '62 they came back and saw off TIpp. This is also to my Knowledge the only time one of the major counties, as in big three, were beaten four years in a row, by the same opposition, in any provincial championship.

Replying To preddan:  "Tipp getting the big desicions again fouls and no frees given, them and Cork are well looked after by the hierarchy in the gaa"
The referee is from Carlow, Preddan, hardly one of "the hierarchy", with all due respect. And he was very generous to Limerick in the second half by failing to send off Gillane, and maybe Flanagan as well. So much for the argument being floated earlier in the year that referees were being especially hard on Limerick. A great team, without a doubt, but it's time to put to bed the theory that they are being somehow victimised, and most of those complaints didn't come from Limerick people, in fairness.

I presume you mean Seamus Flanagan, not Kennedy.

Great come back by Limerick. Lucky though not to finish with 13 men but I feel they were going so strong would have won with 14 anyway. Flanagan is now showing a history of this type of foul. In a way Gillane did not know look to see where Barrett was but just swiped but no excuse. Conor Gleeson must wonder how he missed an All-Ireland for a flick after he was rooted in the ribs. Both are a reaction to getting hurt in the foul. However delighted for Limerick and showed why they are champions.

Ignore him. Every comment he has made on here about Kilkenny are all negative.

Limerick are the best hurling team in the country but a sending off could yet undo them. Gillane should have gone today.

Two stone wall red cards but you won't find a Tipp man looking for excuses or blaming the red for this loss like another county in munster can't stop doing for last couple of weeks.
No embarrassment either to lose to a team like limerick on a day with heat like that.

As Cooney have should got for the reckless challenge that put Joe Canning in casualty. Also a vicious belt of a hurley on Hegarty should have also merited a red card. He was shake n but he got up and foughton and did not make a meal of it like Barret did.

Certain posters on here said Limerick were a tired team. They were...but only for one half. And not the important half.

That was a performance for the ages. As good as anything even produced by Cody's great teams. Has hurling ever seen a better goal than Kyle Hayes'?

Mind you, that first-half performance from Tipp was as good as any I've seen from any Tipperary team throughout the years. Bringing Dan Morrissey in was key to stemming the Tipp tide. He certainly showed his All-Star worth.

The two sides could meet again. What a final that would be to look forward to! If Limk don't improve their tendency to commit red card offenses, the title could be Tipp's, though.

Yes and what seemed a legitimate goal was disallowed in the first half, a free was given against Kyle Hayes, when he was blatantly fouled, when almost through on goal and Peter Casey was definitely fouled on the near sideline in the first half and the ball was also picked off the ground, in the same incident, by a Tipp man and neither foul was punished and Hegarty was felled with a belt of a Tipp hurley, but he soldiered on and did make a meal and go rolling around the ground for nothing like other people did. If the ref made mistakes he did it on both sides

You're taking from the victory. It sounds like sour grapes. Gillane could have got the line yes..He didn't.
There was a man up on Kyle Hayes back in the first half...Peter casey had the shirt pulled off him...both no frees. Actually Hayes got a free against him!. I ll tell you what there ll be people down on the Limerick Tipp border and it won't be the ref they ll talk about. It'll be Limericks performance and Tipps capitulation. Tipp people don't dwell on could haves. They are real hungry people and they ll be asking questions of the team and management.
