*Clare and Tipperary had some great battles in Pairc Ui Chaoimh in the late
1990s and early in the new Millennium. They drew on Leeside (Clare 2-12
Tipperary 0-18) in the 1999 Munster semi-final before the Banner boys won the
replay, 1-21 to 1-11. They met again in the 2000 semi-final, with Tipperary
winning by 2-19 to 1-14. Tipperary beat Clare (0-17 to 0-14) in the 2001 semifinal
and by 1-18 to 2-13 in the 2002 quarter-final but Clare turned the tables in
2003, winning a semi-final by 2-17 to 0-14.
