Liam Heffernan’s senior hurlers stormed to a six-point win over Burgess in Sunday’s replayed Hibernian Inn North Tipperary Senior Hurling Championship Final at MacDonagh Park, Nenagh. With eighteen minutes to play Burgess led 0-7 to 0-6, but the Blues dominated thereafter and hit eight points without reply to land the Frank McGrath Cup. Meanwhile the junior A Camogie team registered a third consecutive win in the county championship – this time the Blues got the better of an excellent Newport team.
