The TipperaryLimerick fixture has been one of the biggest clashes in Munster hurling history. This fixture has provided the closest and most exciting matches, including the three game saga in 2007, which Limerick finally won in the third game in extra-time by 3 points.[1]

Roots[edit]

History[edit]

The rivalry has lasted, due to both teams success in the Munster and All Ireland Senior Championships. Although far behind Tipp and Cork in accolades and achievements, they are never far behind in the rivalries and have even beaten these two teams well on some occasions. Limerick is the third most successful team in Munster hurling. Clare and Waterford coming late onto the scene, Limerick has already won 18 Senior Munster titles and 7 All Ireland senior titles. Limerick has had a rich history, though unlucky on the achievements point of view. They have produced some decent hurlers like Mick and John Mackey, Jackie Power, Paddy Scanlon and Ciarán Carey. These two teams have given us great games, the 1973 Munster final and the 3 game saga of 2007 come to mind straight away. As does the 2009 All Ireland Semi Final when Tipperary won 6-19 to 2-7, a record for this fixture. The present situation is in favour of Tipp, but from 1972 to 1987, Limerick had a hoodoo over Tipp during their famine, which they met four times, including 1981, in which Tipp led by 10 points, Limerick bringing it back to draw and then Limerick won the replay.
