Episode 1548: Tipp Are Champions, Real Life And Hurling, Richie’s Red, Seamie Callanan’s Wonder Year, Cody’s Future
It’s been a bit of a roller-coaster year for Tipperary – an All-Ireland win looked pretty unlikely at the end of the league, looked very likely indeed after the Munster championship round-robin, and then after a 12 point hammering from Limerick in the Munster final, it looked a rather remote possibility again.
But from the ashes of that chastening day, they came good when it mattered – and in a game that will be remembered for Richie Hogan’s red card, they were crowned All-Ireland champions yesterday.
Michael Duignan and Malachy Clerkin tell us why they reckon Tipp would’ve won it anyway even without the red card, how real life scar tissues helped this Tipp team mature, and even speculate on what next for Brian Cody.
