Tip­per­ary v Kerry, Sem­ple Sta­dium (D O’cal­laghan, Lim­er­ick), 7pm.

Tip­per­ary haven’t won a Mun­ster mi­nor cham­pi­onship fix­ture since 2015. They met Kerry in last year’s Mun­ster U17 semi, los­ing by 3-11 to 16. For Kerry, there is strong rep­re­sen­ta­tion from the three Kerry schools — Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuib­hne, Pobalscoil Inbhear Scéine and St Bren­dan’s, Kil­lar­ney — who won Mun­ster post-pri­mary ti­tles this spring. Kil­lian Falvey and Ruaidhrí Ó Beaglaoich con­trib­uted 1-6 be­tween them on the af­ter­noon of Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuib­hne’s Corn Uí Mhuirí fi­nal win and they lead the Kerry at­tack tonight. Cap­tain Paul O’shea is a first cousin of David Clif­ford.
