McGrath happy with Tipp's dual success


Noel McGrath is happy that Tipperary are thriving in both football and hurling this season.

McGrath, who starts for Tipp hurlers against Galway in the All-Ireland semi-final at Croke Park on Sunday, believes the county’s success in both codes is a positive for GAA in the county.

Tipp's footballers are also through to the last four of the All-Ireland for the first time since 1935, where they will meet Mayo on 21 August, and McGrath, whose younger brother and Tipp hurling team-mate John won an All-Ireland minor football medal in 2011, says their success is an inspiration to their own attempts to win the Liam McCarthy cup.

"Look, I played football with my club Loughmore-Castleiney and I love playing it,” he told the Irish Daily Star.

"They’ve been coming there at underage the last few years, I was delighted to see them win and they’ll be looking forward to an All-Ireland semi-final too.

"It’s great to see, having a Tipperary football team in an All-Ireland semi-final for the first time since the 1930s, they are a great group of lads and they’re doing very well.

"If they could get one more step, it would be great, you’d be delighted for them, hopefully they can keep going."
