Allianz Hurling League Division 1A – Tipperary 1-24 Dublin 1-8

Tipperary defeated Dublin by 1-24 to 1-8 in Round 1 of the Allianz Hurling League Division 1A on Saturday February 11th at Croke Park.

Allianz HL D1: Tipp outclass Dublin

Allianz Hurling League, Division 1A


Report by Paul Keane for

All-Ireland holders Tipperary picked up where they left off last September on their return to Croke Park, outgunning Dublin with surprising ease to get their Allianz league campaign off to a flying start.

A 0-8 haul from Seamus Callanan, 1-3 from Jason Forde and a couple of excellent displays by Aidan McCormack, who reeled off 0-5 from play, and captain Padraic Maher all added up to a comfortable 16-point win.

Boss Michael Ryan went with just seven of his All-Ireland final team – the same number incidentally that a youthful Dublin retained from their last Championship game of 2016 – and came good after a slow start.

Tipp led by just five at the break but powered past Dublin in the second-half and the hosts’ agony was compounded by Shane Barrett’s 70th minute dismissals for two bookings.

Tipperary didn’t participate in the Munster senior league pre-season competition and, perhaps as a result, took the first 20 minutes or so to get into their stride.

Dublin, who played three games in the Bord na Mona Walsh Cup, moved 0-4 to 0-1 ahead thanks to points from Niall McMorrow, Oisin O’Rorke, Fionntan MacGibb and Donal Burke.

But McCormack’s 19th minute point for Tipp was the first of five-in-a-row spree from the Munster champions that put them in the driving seat.

McCormack, from the Thurles Sarsfields club, was excellent in the opening half and picked off three fine points from play, the third of which came on the stroke of half-time from out on the right wing.

Callanan, nominated for Player of the Year three years running, miscued an early point attempt in the rain sodden conditions but clipped over five first-half points from frees.

Dublin added just two points after running up that early lead and found themselves 0-11 to 0-06 down at the break. Dubs manager Ger Cunningham named three players who were minors last year – Burke, Cian O’Sullivan and Paddy Smyth – and needed his youthful side to come up with a big second-half display.

But they were blown away by Tipp’s sheer ferocity and the greater experience of key players like Maher, who boomed over two great points, Callanan and Forde whose 55th minute goal killed off the contest.

Tipp outscored Dublin by 1-10 to no score at one stage in the second-half and the Sky Blues didn’t score a point from open play in the entire 35 minutes. Sub Eamonn Dillon did pinch a late goal for Dublin when he volleyed in a clever ball across goals from Burke.

Scorers for Tipperary: Seamus Callanan 0-8 (8f), Jason Forde 1-3, Aidan McCormack 0-5, Padraic Maher 0-2, Tomas Hamill 0-1, Noel McGrath 0-1, Kieran Bergin 0-1, Sean Curran 0-1, Niall O’Meara 0-1, J O’Dwyer 0-1 (1f).

Scorers for Dublin: Eamonn Dillon 1-0, Donal Burke 0-3 (0-3f), Niall McMorrow 0-2, Oisin O’Rorke 0-1, Fiontan MacGib 0-1, Chris Crummey 0-1

TIPPERARY: Daragh Mooney; Donagh Maher, James Barry, John O’Keeffe; Tomas Hamill, Ronan Maher, Padraic Maher; Brendan Maher, Kieran Bergin; Steven O’Brien, Jason Forde, Noel McGrath; John O’Dwyer, Seamus Callanan, Aidan McCormack
Subs: Seamus Kennedy for R Maher (27-35), Michael Cahill for O’Keeffe (49), Sean Curran for O’Brien (52), Niall O’Meara for Callanan (55), Barry Heffernan for R Maher (56), Daire Quinn for P Maher (59).

DUBLIN: Gary Maguire; Shane Barrett, Eoghan O’Donnell, Paddy Smyth; Chris Crummey, Liam Rushe, Sean McGrath; Ben Quinn, Niall McMorrow; Donie Fox, Ryan O’Dwyer, Fiontan MacGib; Oisin O’Rorke, Donal Burke, Cian O’Sullivan
Subs: James Madden for McGrath (42), Eamonn Dillon for O’Sullivan (46), Riain McBride for Fox (49), Caolan Conway for O’Rorke (55), Alex Quinn for MacGib (63).
