Hogan praises Tipp professionalism

Published 12/09/2010

Tipperary manager Ken Hogan has paid tribute to his players for avoiding the Liam McCarthy Cup celebrations in the week leading up to the All-Ireland Under-21 hurling final.

Tipp added a second trophy in the space of a week with a 25 points rout of Galway at Semple Stadium.

"It was really unfair to the boys because we demanded so much of them during the week. They sheltered themselves from the (senior) celebrations and they trained on Tuesday night when the Liam McCarthy Cup was in Eoin Kelly's parish of Mullinahone," said Hogan.

"Our goal from day one was to win an All-Ireland title this year and thankfully we achieved that."
