History[edit]

It is claimed that P. J. Riordan from Drombane scored all of Tipperary's 6-8 when they beat Kilkenny in the 1895 All Ireland final. If true this would make Riordan the highest ever scorer in an All Ireland final beating the current record of 5-4 by Mick "Gah" Ahern of Cork in the 1928 All Ireland final.[1]

In 1894 Drombane won the Tipperary Senior Hurling Championship. The team was captained by Fergus Moriarty.
