Kearns hails remarkable victory


Tipperary manager Liam Kearns was in jubilant form after watching his side record their first Munster SFC victory over Cork in 72 years on Sunday.

Cork were the hot favourites to progress to the Munster decider against Kerry but it is the Premier County that will be preparing for the final after a 3-15 to 2-16 victory in Thurles.

Trailing by nine points a one stage, Cork mounted a comeback in the second half only for Tipperary to withstand the pressure before Kevin O'Halloran scored two late points to put the game beyond their opponents.

"I'd say, in the circumstances, we took so many blows during the course of this year that this achievement would rank up there with any achievement in managerial terms. It's been a tough year management wise," Kearns said.

"If we got hammered out there, you'd be asking questions about where you're going from there. It has to be right up there."

Tipperary went into Sunday's game without dual stars Seamus Kennedy and Steven O'Brien, while Jason Lonergan, Liam Casey and Kevin Fahey are currently in the US and Kearns would love if the players return to the panel.

"This bandwagon is rolling. I hope that fellas will come back. There are top-class players out there, I know there are, and we'll take them all back," Kearns is quoted as saying in the Irish Independent.

"We're not going to turn any player away. We'll be quite happy to have all our best players."
