From the Irish Times newspaper
HARTY CUP SEMI-FINAL: TIPPERARY MINOR Michael O’Brien was the star of the show as 14-man Thurles CBS, the holders, saw off Nenagh CBS in yesterday’s semi-final at Templemore.
O’ Brien bagged nine points for Thurles and was an inspirational figure as the holders overcame the loss of centre-half forward Aidan McCormack who was sent off after only 15 minutes. But the champions rose to the challenge in style and despite a Jason Forde penalty goal for Nenagh in the 24th minute, Thurles led 0-7 to 1-2 at the interval. Substitute John Bergin’s late goal sealed the win.
